What is Sporting Clays? Sporting Clays is among the most popular of the shooting disciplines and is internationally recognized as a competitive sporting event. Sporting Clays are often compared to golf with a shotgun. Clay target shooting is a fun and safe shotgun sport for the entire family. Mechanical traps are used to throw clay disc targets in varying directions allowing a shooter with a shotgun the opportunity of a sporting challenge anytime of the year. Sporting clays is typically shot in groups of two to six people and played over a course of 10 to 15 shooting stations laid around fields or around the natural features of the land. The course designer is not limited in target speed, angle, or distance, so every course is different. Sporting Clays is a clay target game designed to replicate every conceivable shot encountered in field shooting. Any shotgun that’s in safe working condition, capable of firing two shots, may be used. The most popular gauges are 12 and 20.
The Clays for the Community course consists of 60 clay targets at 15 stations with four shots per station. Our event offers loaner sporting clay shotguns as needed.
