Nearly 12,000 students from almost 350 high school teams are participating in the Minnesota Clay Target League’s spring season, which began April 1st.
These are the highest participation numbers ever for the state,according to League officials. Jim Sable, president of the MNSHSCTL says, “This league continues to be one of the largest high school sports in the state of Minnesota.”
The League’s co-ed and adaptive nature are key attractions to high schools in Minnesota. The League is fully IX compliant with both male and female athletes competing on the same team. Additionally,it’s an ‘adaptive’ sport, which allows students with disabilities to take part.
Upon completion of the Spring League’s regular season, all student athletes are invited to participate in individual competitions at the 2018 Trap Shooting Championships. The event – the world’s largest shooting sport event with 8,000 competitors expected – is scheduled for June 11-19 at the Alexandria Shooting Park, while the Skeet Championship will be held at the Minneapolis Gun Club in Prior Lake June 20-21.
