Did You Know About the Nationally Ranked Scholastic Youth Clay Target Team at RCGC?   Spread the word. – RCGC & Carolina Clays Youth Clay Target team in association with the ATA, NSSA, SCTP/NSSF and ACUI are proud to offer the most rewarding “Exclusive Clay Target Shooting Opportunity for the dedicated and passionate youth shooter”.  The Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) is the “only” nationally recognized clay target shooting program that is supported by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF).  ATA, SCTP, NSSF and ACUI are the “only” national organizations that provide scholarship opportunities in the United States for competitive youth clay target shooters.
On a personal note, after formally investing countless hours and money as a parent, team coach and instructor in “other youth shooting organizations with limited competitions and non-registered targets”, I became very disappointed to find that my investments did not lead to further opportunities for my students other than a simple trophy. Thankfully, the Amateur Trap Shooting Association and NSSF created programs like AIM and SCTP. These are the “only” clay target programs in the United States that are endorsed & supported by firearms and ammo manufactures. For these reasons and by the grace of God, are how and why Carolina Clays Inc. was created.  
Carolina Clays Inc. (CC) is committed to our passionate clay shooting students and parents. We provide the opportunity for premium clay target instruction, safety, leadership training, education and financial scholarships that contribute to this great “life-time sport”. Over seventeen collegiate scholarship awards have been received by former and current team members of Carolina Clays since 2009
CC is a nationally ranked competitive clay target team with members ranging from 4th grade to Collegiate. CC Team members compete in registered Skeet, Trap and Sporting Clay competitions throughout North Carolina, regionally and nationally. 
There are many incentives and opportunities to becoming a member of Carolina Clays.

     exclusively for members.
