The California “Junior Claybreakers” (Oaktree Junior Claybreakers). We are a not-for-profit organization under Section 501c(3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code. We are a Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) club. The SCTP Receives administrative oversight from The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation Inc. (SSSF) and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF). We have been actively competing for the past five years and have won titles at both the State and National SCTP Championships.
Our goal is to introduce school-age youths in College grades and under (the majority being 12th grade and under) to the clay target sport of American Trap shooting. We provide a positive and supportive program for assisting young shooters in their growth and development as they become productive and contributing members of society. We provide young shooters the opportunity to safely participate in a high-quality, team based sport led by trained and dedicated volunteer adult coaches that are focused on helping their young shooters become the best they are capable of becoming.
Competition is clearly a part of our program; but it is not the underlying principle. We strive to win while playing by the rules, exhibiting good sportsmanship and being reasonable team members. Our Coaches and Parents set good examples for our young Shooters by upholding high moral and ethical standards of personal conduct and require the same from our Shooters.
Our Shooters pay only actual target fees and rely on fund raising events, grants and donations from Local Business, Organizations and Individuals for the balance of our program costs. I am sure you can imagine there are many cost associated with running a not-for-profit youth program, Insurance, National SCTP Registration etc. The additional funds we raise are spent on Mental Training Materials, Safety Equipment; Training, NRA Marksmanship Program Materials, Shooting Logs, Cleaning Kits and Shoot Entrance Fees.
We meet and practice on Wednesday nights at 7:00 except the second Wednesday night of the month at Oaktree Gun Club. Please feel free to come to a meeting and observe our program. All interested junior shooters are welcome to join our group.
On behalf of our Shooters, Parents and Coaches, we thank you for your interest being a part of our efforts to provide a quality shooting sport program for our children. To view our calendar of activities please check our upcoming events.
