The ACUI Clay Target program is a nonprofit, student-centered, campus-based community of student athletes, volunteer and paid coaches, range facilities, sponsors, friends, families, and ACUI staff.
Our inclusive community provides a foundation for student development, leadership opportunities, and personal growth.
The program saw over 2,400 competitors during the 2018-19 conference championship season. These athletes traveled near and far to compete at one or more of the eleven events. This number includes high school juniors and seniors, who had the opportunity to engage in the experience of shooting at the collegiate level. Additionally, $5,500 in scholarships were awarded to high school athletes who won the NRA Scholarship Shoot-Off at each event.
The season culminated with the 2019 Collegiate Clay Targets Championships, which saw 884 collegiate athletes from 89 teams. This national championship was first held in 1968 and has continued to grow in participation and prestige over the last 50 plus years.
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.
