The Kansas State High School Clay Target League (KSSHSCTL) is proud to announce that 503 student athletes are scheduled to participate in the 2017 State Tournament, June 3rd and 4th at the Ark Valley Gun Club outside of Wichita, KS.
Student athletes representing 38 Kansas high school teams will compete for individual and team achievements at the tournament, which is held each year following the completion of the League’s spring season.
“This League is the fastest-growing activity in Kansas schools.” said Jim Sable, Executive Director of the KSSHSCTL, “Participation for the State Tournament has more than doubled since last year. It’s very exciting to see Kansas embrace the clay target league as it has.”
Generous supporters for the State Tournament include: Cabela’s Outdoor Fund, HybridLight, Sportsman’s Guide, and Walker’s.
This year more than 700 student athletes representing 39 high school teams participated in the 2017 spring season. They were coached and supported by over 300 volunteers.
The Kansas State High School Clay Target League is an affiliate of the USA High School Clay Target League, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The League is an independent provider of shooting sports as an extracurricular co-ed and adaptive activity for high schools and students in grades six through 12. The organization’s priorities are safety, fun, and marksmanship – in that order. Each student is required to pass a comprehensive firearm safety education course prior to participation.
Nationwide, over 20,000 student athletes representing over 600 school-approved teams participated in the League during the 2016-17 school year.
