About the Minnesota State High School Clay Target League Trap Shooting Championship
With nearly 7,000 student athletes competing, along with 20,000+ spectators, the MNSHSCTL Trap Shooting Championship is the largest shooting event in the world.
USA High School Clay Target LeagueThe Minnesota State High School Clay Target League is an affiliate of the USA High School Clay Target League, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and independent provider of shooting sports as an extracurricular co-ed and adaptive activity for high schools and students in grades 6 through 12. The organization’s priorities are safety, fun, and marksmanship – in that order. The League attracts student athletes that have earned their firearm safety certification to participate in shooting sports while creating a “virtual” competition among high school teams at no cost to the schools. Family travel costs are minimal because practice and competition are conducted at a shooting range near the school’s location. The league is also the safest sport in high school, with no reported injuries since the inception of the League in 2001. Learn about the history of the League
