Jr. Pride Trap Team

Welcome to the Jr. Pride Trap Team!!!

Learning how to shoot requires discipline, self-control, hand-eye coordination and concentration. Required safety training instills respect, responsibility, teamwork and sportsmanship. The quick success beginner shooters often experience gives them a sense of self-esteem and confidence. In young people, these are all important qualities that affect many other aspects of life. A good youth shooting program fosters these positive life skills.*
