Ducks Unlimited Increases Support of the Scholastic Clay Target Program
With a focused drive to support the next generation of waterfowl hunters, Ducks Unlimited has renewed its sponsorship of the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP), increasing its support as a new Gold Level sponsor.
“Conservation has been supported by hunters and the shooting sports for generations in America,” said Justin Aycock, Manager of Youth Engagement Programs. “Ducks Unlimited is proud to support SCTP’s mission to develop the next generation of sporting clay shooters. SCTP’s focus on youth shooting sports aligns with DU’s R3 engagement, focused on fostering the next generation of hunters and conservationists.”
“The history of clay target sports can be directly traced back to hunters wanting to hone their skills,” said SCTP National Director, Tom Wondrash. “A significant portion of our athletes, coaches, and families participate in hunting and we really appreciate the support of Ducks Unlimited with their increased sponsorship of the SCTP. Their presence at the 2021 National Championships further enhanced the event and got some of those folks who don’t hunt interested and wanting to know where to begin. The Ducks Unlimited T.R.A.P. program showcases their dedication to our youth teams with meaningful, no cost fundraising packages that are fantastic tools to help grow these teams.”
