The S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR) announces a new shooting sports opportunity for Palmetto State schools.  The DNR Scholastic Clay Target Sports (SCTS) is a team-based youth development program that uses the shotgun sports of trap, skeet, and sporting clays to instill life skills such as discipline, safety, teamwork, ethics, self-confidence and other life values.

Following the proven scholastic approach used in the National Archery in the Schools program, SCDNR is offering new school team packages that will include free head-coach training and team practices. To be a school team, you must be a sanctioned private, public, or home school in South Carolina. Home school teams must be a part of a recognized home school association.
