Crushers youth team
The Central Penn Crushers is a Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) youth clay shooting team hosted by Central Penn Sporting Clays. We provide students from elementary through high school the opportunity to shoot and compete in one of the fastest growing sports in America, sporting clays, along with other clay shooting disciplines. SCTP is a youth development program focused on sportsmanship, responsibility, and team work, using clay shooting sports as a catalyst to teach these and other positive life skills to SCTP athletes in a supportive environment. The SCTP’s mission is to help kids reach their highest potential in becoming the best athletes and young adults they can be. The Crushers rely on donations and fundraising to offset the cost of uniforms, targets, and competition entry fees for youth athletes.

The Central Penn Crushers offer our youth the chance to make new friends, learn responsibility and discipline, as well as compete in something they really enjoy. The Crushers generate numerous opportunities for young adults in our community, however, there are many expenses that make it challenging to provide these opportunities. This program is only possible through the generosity of our supporters.
