After conversations with many of the USA Sporting Clays Team members, as well as discussions with the NSCA Executive Committee, the decision has been made not to send the USA teams to the 2021 World English Championship nor the 2021 World FITASC Championship this year.
Their feedback regarding health, testing protocols, and quality of the experience led many team members to make the decision to forego the trips. The potential inability to fill out the entire USA teams was a major factor in coming to this decision.
A few team members have expressed their intention to go to the 2021 World FITASC in Hungary as individual U.S. citizens; the NSCA supports that decision and wishes them the best of luck.
With this decision, the 2022 team qualifications will reset. There will be no rollover of points from 2020. Only scores from this year, 2021, will count toward 2022 team qualification.
While the disruption of the past two shooting seasons is regrettable, we trust this will all be behind us in 2022 and our teams can resume international competition.
