Clay Target, and specifically trap shooting, is practiced all over the world. It is the fastest growing activity in the Minnesota State High School League, with over 10,000 students and more than 300 participating teams. The collegiate co-ed league is designed for all skill levels. Students new to the sport or interested in continuing after high school, are welcome to join.
Our five-college league will have a nine week season. Weekly competitions will take place at each college’s home shooting range. There will be an end of season championship. At that event, all of the colleges will meet at one site to compete against one another for individual and team titles. Tuition and fees will cover the cost of targets, ammunition and necessary safety equipment.
College athletics officials will seek approval with the Minnesota College Athletic Conference for varsity sport status. Their goal is to have this in place by 2018, the second season of competition.
