The NSC has been the home for the college national championships and where colleges have faced off for huge trophies and thousands of dollars in scholarships for over 20 years! Industry partners and supporters also show up in support of this historical event taking place at the end of this month.

“We’re excited to be back in action at the National Shooting Complex in San Antonio, TX for the 2023 ACUI & SCTP Collegiate Clay Target Championships,” stated ACUI Educational Program Manager, Taylor Blechschmid. “While ACUI has hosted this Collegiate Championship event for over 50 years, we know it has only been elevated through our partnership with SCTP. Everyone can look forward to a great week of exceptional shooting, fierce competition, and of course – fun!”

“The SCTP is thrilled to be hosting this event in partnership with ACUI at the historic National Shooting Complex,” said SCTP National Director, Tom Wondrash. “Throughout the season we have been hosting joint events as part of our SCTP/ACUI Bowl Series, with great success. We are happy to bring our large-scale competition event experience and scoring system to this partnership, with an aim to provide the best experience for our college teams in what is now the premier college-level clay target event in the nation.”
