Ohio Clay Target league: How to get involved
The purpose of the Ohio State High School Clay Target League is to attract students to participate in shooting sports while creating friendly competition among high schools throughout Ohio!
With the assistance of hundreds of volunteer coaches and parents, student athletes in grades 6 through 12 represent their high school by competing in weekly trap shooting at their local shooting range. Scores are submitted online and compared against other high school trap teams within their conference. The OHSHSCTL provides a safe, comfortable, and positive team environment that enhances a student athlete’s character and personal growth through safe, educational, and socially acceptable involvement in shooting sports.
Any public, private or parochial high school in Ohio is invited to participate. Teams require:
- Approval from the school (School Board, Principal, and/or Activities/Athletic Director)
- Use of the school name
Schools are strongly encouraged to provide a lettering program and photo in the yearbook.
Any high school can join!
Which student athletes can join a team?
Any Ohio student is eligible to participate if he/she:
- Is in grades 6 through 12, AND
- Possesses a league-issued Student Athlete Firearm Education (SAFE) Certificate, AND
- Meets all school curricular activity eligibility requirements, AND
- If the team has room to accommodate the student athlete.

They meet throughout the school year on Wednesday nights and coordinate a few weekend events during the year.
Shooting sports, with the right interest can help the youth focus and learn to block out distractions which will help in school and other aspects of life. The Crew has had youth that have moved on to Olympic development programs, College shooting teams, Gunsmithing schools, to name a few.
