Shotgun

Kids will learn trap shooting skills and terms through hands on experience!

Shotgun Shooting Fundamentals
Shotgun shooting is learned, not an inborn gift. Six fundamental form concepts must be learned and practiced before they can be put together effectively: stance, gun-ready position, mounting the gun, swing to the target, trigger pull and follow through. Each of them involves a number of skills important to good shotgun shooting. We will develop them one at a time before trying to put all of them together.

Participating youth and adults will:
1. Successfully shoot a moving target using the fundamentals of shotgun shooting.
2. Practice fundamental shotgun shooting skills in a ball and dummy exercise.
3. Demonstrate the necessary knowledge, skill and mental attitudes for safety firing shotguns at moving targets.
4. Operate a spring-powered trap.
5. Have fun while learning.
