About Clay Targets

The ACUI Clay Targets program was established in 1968 and is the oldest collegiate shotgun sports program. Over the last 50 years, the program has evolved from a national championship event to a robust program, offering regional events from October through March each year in addition to the ACUI Collegiate Clay Targets Championships. As the popularity of shooting sports programs on college campuses has grown, so has participation in the ACUI Clay Targets events. The ACUI Clay Targets program strives to produce efficient, fun, and friendly competitions for collegiate student athletes.

The ACUI Clay Targets program does not require membership for participation in events. We welcome everything from individual student athletes to teams of 20+ to attend any of our events, as long as eligibility requirements are met. Teams that have not competed in an ACUI competition before can sign up to be part of the program using this form. Additional questions can be answered by referencing the FAQ or by contacting us at

Thanks to Larry and Brenda Potterfield and MidwayUSA Foundation, along with support from our sponsors, the ACUI Clay Targets program has been able to grow and give back to the community. The ACUI Clay Target program will continue to support and encourage the development of shotgun sports teams for years to come.
