SHOOTING SPORTS CLUB

Shotgun

Programs

  • Skeet Shooting is a recreational and competitive activity where participants, using shotguns, attempt to break clay disks automatically flung into the air from two fixed stations at high speed from a variety of angles. Skeet is one of the three major types of competitive shotgun target shooting sports (the others are trap shooting and sporting clays). There are several types of skeet, including one with Olympic status (often called Olympic skeet or international skeet) and many with only national recognition. In skeet shooting, targets are launched from two “houses” in somewhat “sideways” paths that intersect in front of the shooter.
  • Trapshooting – is one of the three major disciplines of competitive clay pigeon shooting (shotgun shooting at clay targets). The other disciplines are skeet shooting and sporting clays. In trap shooting, the targets are launched from a single “house” or machine, generally away from the shooter.


Facilities

  • Skeet matches are held on both skeet fields (No. 4 & No. 5)
  • Trap matches are held on the trap and patterning range (No. 6)
