Start a Team

It’s fun for everyone…

The purpose of the Minnesota State High School Clay Target League is to attract students to participate in shooting sports while creating friendly competition among high schools throughout Minnesota!

With the assistance of hundreds of volunteer coaches and parents, student athletes in grades six through twelve represent their high school by competing in weekly trap shooting at their local shooting range. Scores are submitted online and compared against other high school trap teams within their conference. The MNSHSCTL provides a safe, comfortable, and positive team environment that enhances a student athlete’s character and personal growth through safe, educational, and socially acceptable involvement in shooting sports.
