Depending on enrollments, our approximate start times will be 6:00 for Trap and Skeet and 5:30 for Sporting Clays. These times can be adjusted slightly, especially early in the season as daylight hours are shorter.

Parent Volunteer Requirements:
Due to some changes with how Metro will operate this year, we will need parents of Trap athletes to pull and score. Metro has decreased our range fees this year because they will not be providing pullers or scorers during our 8-week core season. If every family supplies one parent for one day, we should have the season covered. There will be a signup form shared soon for you to signup for any day throughout our season. When you signup you will be the puller and scorer for a designated field for the entire evening. Please be prepared for any weather situation. Training will be provided on your designated evening.
