Two Olympians Are SCTP Grads
American Olympic shooting medalists Vincent Hancock
and Corey Cogdell helped develop their skills by participating with friends on teams enrolled in the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP). Developed by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, SCTP is now administered by the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation and continues to introduce school-age youth grades 12 and under to trap, skeet and sporting clays. At the same time, participants learn the safe and responsible use of firearms, develop character and citi- zenship through teamwork and are introduced to a fun, life- time sport. All participants shoot in state competitions and are eli-
gible to compete in the SCTP national championships as well. Many troops have formed SCTP teams. Why not have your troop participate in SCTP? Learn more at sssfonline.org.
