Youth Program

The Newman Swamp Rats trapshooting club has participated in the California Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) since 2003, under the direction of the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF).  The mission of the SSSF is to introduce school-aged youth in grades 12 and under to clay target sports.  The SCTP provides young people with a positive experience in sports designed to instill them with personal values and character traits such as fair play, compassion, individual responsibility, sportsmanship, self-discipline, personal commitment, and a special camaraderie that can only be found in team sports.

All SCTP activities incorporate two indispensable elements:  safety and fun.  Safety is incorporated into every facet of all SCTP activities.  The learning environment at team practices and competitive shoots are designed to include the element of fun for all participants.  Our practice schedule is planned with the intent of having our shooters prepare to compete in the annual California State Championship Tournament.
