Trap Shooting

Welcome to Trap Shooting!

PACT Charter School has been a proud member of the Minnesota High School Clay Target League since early 2015. Each year participation has grown, as interest in the shooting sports has spread across the country. The League’s co-ed and adaptive nature are key attractions to high schools in Minnesota. The League is fully Title IX compliant with both male and female athletes competing on the same team. Additionally, it’s an ‘adaptive’ sport, which allows students with physical disabilities to take part. The state of Minnesota had nearly 12,000 students, from 349 high schools, participate in the spring 2018 season. The League is also the safest sport in high school, with no reported injuries since the inception of the League in 2001.
