Club Trap Info & Rules

The club trap shoots are held the first Saturday of each month from February to September, weather permitting. Beginning in 2014, registration starts one hour prior to scheduled start times below. Scores are kept individually and each shooter may shoot 50 targets in singles, handicap, and doubles. Your ATA class will be used to seed you in all events. If you don’t have an ATA class then we will use the 2013 club trap shoot average. Not having an ATA or club shoot class will put you into the penalty class.

All targets will be shot using each member’s ERAD device. At the end of the year we will award championship buckles to the top shooters after the Annual Club Business Meeting. Shooters may only win one buckle. See you soon!


Class will be based on competitor’s ATA class or 2013 Club Singles average score (or shoot the penalty class).

Three classes: A class – 95% and up B class – 91% to under 95% C class – under 91%


Competitors will use their current ATA handicap yardage. If a competitor does not hold an ATA handicap yardage, the competitor shall use the yardage listed below based on their 2013 Club Handicap average (or shoot the penalty yardage).

89% and below = 19 yards
89.1% to 90.0% = 20 yards
90.1% to 91.0% = 21 yards
91.1% to 92.0% = 22 yards
92.1% to 93.0% = 23 yards
93.1% to 94.0% = 24 yards
94.1% to 95.0% = 25 yards
95.1% to 97.0% = 26 yards
97% and above = 27 yards


Class will be based on competitor’s ATA class or 2013 Club Doubles average score (or shoot the penalty class).

Three classes: A class – 89% and up B class – under 89% to 83% C class – under 83%

Penalty Class/Yardage

Competitors that do not have an ATA class or handicap, or did not shoot at least 100 targets in the 2013 season, will shoot in the penalty class/yardage listed below for the first 100 targets in each event. We will re-average every 100 targets (every other month) in all three events and adjust class and or yardage as appropriate.

Singles – B class
Doubles – B class
Handicap – 21 yards

Please check Club Trap Shoot Schedule for dates.

In addition to the earlier times above the other change that should help with the length of the shoot is that we will be having the LAST squad of singles out at 12:00 these first two months and then at 10:00 thereafter. What this means is during the sign up period (one hour before the start time) as the singles squads form they will be allowed to shoot. Anyone that wants to shoot singles will have to sign up prior to the last squad out at 12:00 or 10:00 starting in April. The first HC squad will start as soon as the last singles squad ends. Doubles will start as squads complete the prior events. This should shorten the over length of the shoot and have the same effect of an earlier start time than posted and still allow anyone that can’t make it until the posted LAST squad out time to be able to participate.
