The National Skeet Shooting Association and the National Sporting Clays Association are the official governing and sanctioning bodies for their sports.
The National Skeet Shooting Association (NSSA) was founded in 1928 and is a non-profit organization owned and operated by its members. It is the world’s largest skeet shooting organization and annually hosts the World Skeet Championships. Membership is represented by a Board of Directors and an Executive Committee which employs an Executive Director to manage NSSA business.
The National Sporting Clays Association (NSCA) was formed in 1989 as a division of the NSSA. NSCA membership is represented by National Delegates and an Executive Council, and an Advisory Council provides members with an additional source of input. It is the largest sporting clays organization in the world, hosting an annual National Sporting Clays Championship that attracts shooters from every U.S. state and many foreign countries.
NSSA and NSCA are dedicated to the development of skeet shooting and sporting clays at all levels of participation and work to create an atmosphere of healthy competition and meaningful fellowship within their membership. Shooters who want to compete can enter both fun shoots and registered tournaments.
Both organizations are headquartered at the National Shooting Complex in San Antonio, Texas. The National Shooting Complex is one of the premier shooting facilities in the world, hosting elite tournaments for skeet and sporting clays, including the World Skeet Championships and National Sporting Clays Championship. In addition, it is the venue for a wide range of shooting and non-shooting events for thousands of serious competitors, casual shooters, and outdoors enthusiasts each year.
