Shoot Alongside Olympic Team Members at 2020 National Sporting Clay Cup

May 7th-9th in Houston, TX

The 2020 National Sporting Clay Cup, a USA Shooting biennial event at the American Shooting Center in Houston, Texas, will have an Olympic flare to it this year as participants will practice alongside members of the newly-named 2020 U.S. Olympic Team. Without a doubt, the May 7-9 event promises to be the can’t-miss sporting clays fundraiser of the year.

The three-day event kicks off with a benefactor dinner on Thursday, May 7, at the Palm Restaurant, followed by a practice day with the Olympic Team members on Friday, May 8, and an 84-target event on Saturday, May 9. The past three iterations of the National Sporting Clay Cup have raised over $500,000 for USA Shooting.

Butch Eller, Co-Owner of American Shooting Centers, noted that this biennial event was conceived in 1994 to match the additional funding needs of USA Shooting for athlete participation in the World Championships and Olympic Games, which occur at the mid-point and the end of the Olympic quadrennium.  The previous events have been extremely well received and offer a chance for young and mature shooters, alike to meet the athletes who represent the United States on the biggest of world stages.

The fundraiser uses the very popular shotgun discipline of sporting clays as the draw to lure shooting sport enthusiasts to support the USA Shooting Team as they head toward the upcoming Tokyo 2020 Games.

As the only non-government supported Olympic shooting team in the world, USA Shooting relies heavily on donors and sponsors to help maintain a history of success that includes 110 Olympic medals.

Individuals and/or organizations looking to help support USA Shooting but that cannot participate in the event can buy a spot in the event and/or sponsor a team and provide Houston-area youth and military members the chance to participate.

Conveniently located on 563 acres in George Bush Park, American Shooting Centers has been a recreational shooter’s paradise since 1989 in the Houston area. The facility features a Rifle & Pistol Range with over 100 positions, a Trap & Skeet Range and four championship Sporting Clays courses. Charity and corporate clay events of 800 or more shooters are regularly held on the Sporting Clays courses. 

Kruse Interests is working in coordination with American Shooting Centers and USA Shooting to help manage and organize the event.
