Winchester Ammunition has continued its support of the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) as a Red Diamond sponsor in 2023. This three-year agreement through 2024 is indicative of Winchester Ammunition’s long-term support of the youth shooting sports program. Despite the very high demand for its products, Winchester Ammunition remains the official ammunition of SCTP and of the SCTP International Team, which is made up of the 15 best SCTP youth shooters in the international disciplines of skeet and bunker trap.
“As the Official Ammunition for SCTP and the SCTP International Team, Winchester remains committed to supporting the growth of shooting sports,” said Jason Gilbertson, Winchester Ammunition’s director of marketing. “SCTP is an exciting and growing organization built on committed leadership, coaches, athletes and parents. We are excited for the next season.”
“We are grateful and encouraged by the tremendous support from the best in the industry, year after year,” said SCTP National Director Tom Wondrash. “Our shared vision of the exponential growth of youth shooting sports is realized through the remarkable support of Winchester. As a Red Diamond sponsor of SCTP, Winchester has shown its dedication by supporting our members in all areas. From the newest shooter benefiting from the spring shot program, to our elite international SCTP team being given the resources to compete at the highest level. We are delighted to have the continued support of Winchester Ammunition!”
