The USA Clay Target League and COVID-19

UPDATE – Wednesday, April 1st 2020

The League thanks you for your patience and understanding in the uncertainty arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. The League has worked hard to provide the most opportunity for athletes to participate this year despite the hurdles we’re all experiencing.

Registration for the season will continue through April 13th, but for those athletes and teams that feel they are unable to participate this season or complete their season by the score submission date on June 24th, the refund process for the 2020 season can be found below.

Those athletes that remain registered for the Modified 2020 Spring Season will be rewarded with a special limited-edition t-Shirt and a full-year subscription (4 issues) to PullUSA Magazine beginning with our Spring Issue, which features current World Champion Ashley Carroll. This special package ($40 value) is the League’s way of saying THANK YOU to all the dedicated athletes and parents who have endured these uncertain times with us. Registered seniors are also eligible to apply for the postsecondary scholarship.

If your team or student athlete cannot participate this spring season, please strongly consider to keep your student athlete registered to take advantage of the Special Offer AND financially help the League. Financial contributions to our non-profit organization are appreciated more than ever during these very troubled times.

Modified 2020 Spring Season Participation Status Options: April 8th – April 13th Noon CT

Parents/athletes are required to communicate their participation status with their Head Coach. The coach is responsible for selecting the athlete’s participation status in the Team Management System (TMS). Participation status can be changed prior to the registration deadline on April 13 at Noon CT.

  • Participating (DEFAULT): The athlete WILL participate (submit scores) on the team and receive the Special Offer. Students may still register for the team before the registration deadline. No refund.
  • Special Offer: The athlete WILL NOT participate (no scores submitted) on the team but will receive the Special Offer. No refund.
  • Withdrawal: The athlete WILL NOT participate on the team, DOES NOT want the Special Offer, AND wants a refund for their registration fee that has been paid to the League.  

After the registration deadline, participation status can no longer be changed and refunds will not be allowed.

Seniors that maintain their registration and/or take advantage of the special offer are eligible to apply for the Jim Sable Environment & Conservation Education Scholarship.

Athletes requesting a refund for registration fees paid directly to the League will be issued to the same payment method that was used (credit card or ECheck) prior to May 15, 2020.
