Benefits of the shooting sports:

  1. Safety with firearms begins with learning the rules and acquiring the skills to apply them in a responsible and conscientious manner.
  2. The shooting sports help to enforce discipline and respect.
  3. Trapshooting format provides a level playing field for team members and provides equal opportunity for all students, regardless of background and experience.
