2020 Collegiate Clay Target Championships

The 2020 ACUI Collegiate Clay Targets Championship has been cancelled. What’s next?

ACUI is announce the ACUI Clay Targets Summer Series! This July and August, we’ll be offering four events located throughout the country. Unlike the Shotgun Bowl Series and Clay Targets Championship, competition is open to everyone! We’re excited to welcome college athletes, high school students, parents, friends, coaches, alumni, sponsors, and industry partners. The Summer Series will include American Trap, American Skeet, and Sporting Clays. Awards will be given in each discipline, as well as High Overall.

Planning for the 2020–21 season is underway as well. Dates for the Shotgun Bowl Series and 2021 Collegiate Clay Target Championships are now online.  

Why didn’t you reschedule the event?

Continued travel restrictions due to institutional, state, and national response to COVID-19 and suspended funding would make it difficult for many athletes to attend a rescheduled event. It was impossible to create an event that would satisfy all parties and serve as a legitimate championship for the sport. We decided it was in the best interest of the teams and sport to forgo a championship in 2020.

As a senior who recently graduated, will I be able to compete at the 2021 ACUI Collegiate Clay Targets Championship?
We’re still working to determine eligibility for those who graduate this year. The goal is to allow you to compete, but more information will be shared in the coming months.
Do I need to cancel my registration or my team’s registration online?
You don't need to cancel your registration. ACUI staff will be automatically processing cancellations in the coming weeks and issuing credits to the appropriate accounts. Please see the questions below for details on how to use your credit or receive a refund.
We paid as a team; how do we get our credit or refund? 

Requests for use of a credit or a refund will need to come from the individual identified as the coach or team leader.

Coaches or team leaders may allow team members to use the credit toward the Summer Series, Shotgun Bowl Series, or the 2021 Collegiate Clay Targets Championship (honoring the 2020 pricing if increased for 2021). All refund requests must be made in writing and sent to acui@acui.org for processing by June 30.

I paid for my registration separate from my team; will I still get a credit or refund?

All payments will be credited toward the appropriate account. Request for credit use or refund will need to come from the account owner.

Credits on individual accounts can be used for registration for the Summer Series, Shotgun Bowl Series, or the 2021 Collegiate Clay Targets Championship (honoring the 2020 pricing if increased for 2021). All refund requests must be made in writing and sent to acui@acui.org for processing by June 30.

How do I use the credit on my account or my team’s account? 

ACUI meeting registrations will have the option to use a current credit on your account as payment. If you choose to utilize the credit, complete all the information on the credit screen as part of the registration process, which includes identifying what the credit is from (e.g., 2020 Nationals and the name/team name). To finalize your registration and use the credit, choose “Pay by Check/PO” and submit. 

Please note that if you identify a credit associated with another individual/team, ACUI will verify use before applying.

If I was registered for Nationals, will my registration automatically transfer to one of the Summer Series events?
No, it will not. You’ll have to register for one of those events separately. You can, however, use your credit to apply towards a Summer Series registration fee if you paid individually.

Clay Targets Summer Series

When will registration open for the Summer Series events?
Details are still being finalized. More information will be shared in the coming weeks.
I just graduated in May; am I still eligible to compete in the Summer Series?
Absolutely! We hope that all recent graduates will be able to join us at one of the four events.
Will my team be able to compete in the Summer Series?
While you are welcome to travel and attend as a team, the Summer Series will focus on individual competition.
Is there a chance that the Summer Series events will be cancelled due to COVID-19?
There is a chance that these events could be impacted by COVID-19. We’ll be monitoring updates related to health and travel over the next few months to determine if we’re able to safely hold these events. Should we be unable to hold the events, cancellation will be announced at least two weeks prior to the event dates.
