Redwood County Pheasants Forever is proud to help keep kids involved in shooting sports! For the 2019 spring season, 125 cases of shotgun shells were purchased. That’s 1,250 rounds of trap or 12,500 shells! We’re excited to continue to keep our youth in Redwood County involved in High School Trap.
These shells will go to our four local high school trap teams including Cedar Mountain (Morgan), Red Rock Central (Lamberton, Sanborn, Storden and Jeffers), Redwood Valley (Redwood Falls) and Wabasso Public (Wabasso). Each athlete will receive a case of shells to use this season.
About High School Trap
In a given high school trap season, each athlete will shoot a minimum of 500 shells (not including the championship). The season runs 10 weeks with the championship taking place in June. More than 330 high school teams (that’s over 8,500 students) convene at the Alexandria Shooting Park in Alexandria, Minnesota.
The Minnesota State High School Clay Target League’s priorities are safety, fun and marksmanship – in that order. Since the League’s start in 2008, there have been no recorded injuries to athletes, coaches or spectators (mnclaytarget.com). High School Trap is a sport that anyone can participate in regardless of their athletic ability. Since it’s start, the sport has grown exponentially each year from 3 teams in 2008 to 330 teams in 2018.
