The trap field is set up with five shooting positions. Each shooter shoots five targets per position taking turns with the other shooters in the group. Accuracy is the key here. Targets are thrown at various angles which change randomly. You¹ll never really know if your target will be thrown hard left or straight away. A normal round of trap consists of twenty five targets.

The Skeet field presents its own sets of challenging targets. The skeet field is set up with eight shooting positions in a semi circle marked by a green box. A typical round consists of twenty five targets. All targets are thrown from a ‘low house’ or ‘high house’ depending on the station the shooter is on. Shooters get to test their skill at singles, doubles, hard crossers, incoming and outgoing targets.

This shotgun discipline is similar to Sporting Clays but targets are set up in a circular pattern around a field. Normally there are eight targets which can be thrown as singles, report pair, true pair or following pairs. Five stand is a great place to practice a variety of shots including rabbits, going away targets, hard crossers, etc. You¹ll see a wide variety of targets at the five stand field. All shooting is done from behind the designated area.
If you're new to shotguns, this is the place to start. Wobble trap presents all going away targets in a random angle. There are five shooting positions from which to shoot. If fun and breaking a lot or targets is your goal, then this is the shotgun discipline for you.

As the ATA has grown during the years, one of its largest and most successful efforts has been the development of the AIM (Academics, Integrity, Marksmanship) youth trapshooting program. Competitive youth statewide and zone wide events are administered during the year from the ATA national headquarters in Sparta, leading up to the AIM Grand National Championship event during the Grand American. In addition to program administration, the AIM program offers scholarship opportunities annually based upon the themes of the program - Academics, Integrity and Marksmanship.
