"This is a tremendous opportunity for Winchester to work with an organization that helps thousands of coaches and athletes participate in the youth shooting sports each year."
The objective on the SCTP is to help youngsters reach their potential of becoming the best athletes--and young adults--that they can be.
"We are elated to have Winchester Ammunition as the Official Ammunition of SCTP and the SCTP National Shooting Team," said Tom Wondrash, SCTP National Executive Director.
