CLAY TARGET SPORTS

Program Information

GISA High School Clay Target Sports started in 2013. The season runs from August through December culminating in the State Clay target Sports Tournament held at the Forest City Gun Club in Savannah, GA. Clay Target sports consists of three unique events/disciplines: Trap, Skeet and Sporting Clays.

The Trinity Clay Target Sports Program is organized as both a club/Junior Varsity (JV) and a Varsity Team. The Varsity team consists of high school students. Club/Junior Varsity, can compete at home events and select away meets, but are not eligible to compete at the state tournament.

Two home meets will be scheduled where both Varsity and JV athletes are expected to participate. These meets will provide exceptional tournament level experience in preparation for the state meet. These meets will also serve as state qualifying events.

Practices will be held on Saturday mornings to allow athletes to compete in other fall sports and minimize schedule conflicts. Additional practices will be available during the week for those athletes not participating in a fall sport. A physical conditioning program will also be developed to help ensure the athlete is prepared for the physical and mental challenges of the shooting sports.

Vision Statement

Within three years, the Trinity Christian School Clay Target Sports team will develop Christ led athletes that are among the top five individual clay target shooters in GISA for trap, skeet or sporting clays. The Clay Target Sports program will field a team that will place within the top three teams in the state at the GISA State meet within three years.

Goal Statement

The goal for the Trinity Christian School Clay Target Sports Program is to develop and deliver a safe training environment for the student athlete to develop their marksmanship abilities, self-confidence, individual responsibility, and competitive spirit while bringing honor to God.

Team Requirements

All athletes must have completed the Georgia Hunter’s Education class. GISA academic eligibility requirements apply to Varsity and JV athletes. GISA requires athletes to participate in scheduled practices.

Practices

Athletes are expected to be able to practice on Saturday mornings. Athletes need to be prepared to help setup the shooting fields at the beginning of practice and break down the equipment at the end of practice. Each athlete will receive individual and group instruction and coaching at every practice. Additional practice sessions may be available during the week, typically on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
