About Us

NSCA is the largest Sporting Clays association in the world and the governing body for the sport in the U.S. We keep records of our members’ scores in competition, register shoots for the clubs and associations, hold the National Championship each year, and provide myriad awards for outstanding achievements.


The NSCA is dedicated to the development of the sport at all levels of participation and vows to create an atmosphere of healthy competition and meaningful fellowship within its membership. Shooters who wish to compete can enter sporting clays tournaments and be competitive immediately. The NSCA also offers the hunter a recreational target shooting sport that will strengthen hunting and gun safety skills and extend “hunting” seasons.


NSCA has over 22,000 members in all 50 US states and 10 foreign countries. More than 600 member clubs serve members and host both registered and recreational shoots.


The National Sporting Clays Association is a non-profit organization owned and operated by its members. Membership is represented by an Executive Council which employs an Executive Director to manage NSCA affairs. An Advisory Council provides members with an additional source of input.
