About Us

North Carolina Youth Education in Shooting Sports

North Carolina Youth Education in Shooting Sports (NCYESS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. NCYESS is the state’s only all-inclusive provider of shooting sports in elementary through high school as an extracurricular co-ed activity. The organization’s priorities are to provide a safe and fun family environment under annually certified adult supervision. NCYESS oversees American Skeet, American Trap, Sporting Clays, Olympic Skeet, and Olympic Trap at local, state, regional, and national championship tournaments and virtual leagues in several states across the country. 
NCYESS is also proud to be partnered with the nation’s largest collegiate clay target program, the Association of College Unions International (ACUI) thus providing a bridge into collegiate marksmanship programs. Both NCYESS and ACUI are national partners with the MidwayUSA Foundation and, therefore, can provide teams with perpetual endowment funding. 

If your child or a friend’s child is interested in learning firearm safety in a safe, fun adult-supervised environment, feel free to contact us.
We can introduce your athlete to our program and or help you start a team.
Join the state and nation’s fastest-growing and only all-inclusive youth clay target program in the country.
