Winchester Ammunition has renewed its support of the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) as a Red Diamond Sponsor in 2022. This three-year agreement through 2024 is a continuation of Winchester Ammunition’s long-term support of the youth shooting sports program. The announcement follows the conclusion of the 2021 SCTP National Championship, which was the largest ever in SCTP history and the largest shoot ever hosted at the Cardinal Shooting Center. In addition to the continued support of the team-based youth shooting sports organization, Winchester Ammunition also continues as the official ammunition of the SCTP and the SCTP International Team, which is made up of the top 15 SCTP youth shooters in the international disciplines of skeet and bunker trap.
“Winchester continues to demonstrate industry leadership with its commitment to the growth of the shooting sports and organizations like SCTP,” said Matt Campbell, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Winchester Ammunition. “The SCTP leadership, coaches and young athletes drive excitement into the shooting sports … it’s a model that we are proud to support.”
“Winchester Ammunition’s unwavering sponsorship is an inspiration to continually improve opportunities for youth development and take youth shooting sports further with each season,” beamed SCTP National Director, Tom Wondrash. “With 2020 being an unprecedented year of uncertainty, the SCTP family of teams, sponsors, and supporters instead worked together to bounce back in 2021 for unprecedented success. Our community is incredible, and we thank Winchester Ammunition for being such an integral part of everyone’s success at the program level, all the way down to the individual SCTP athlete.”
