Join Illinois’ newest and safest high school sport!
Schools and student athletes from across Illinois are invited to join the 2017 spring league!
Student athletes considering joining a team are required to earn League-approved firearm safety certification. Existing teams may have limited availability to add new athletes – check with your school. New teams are only limited by the number of athletes that can be on a team as determined by coaching resources and shooting range capabilities.
New teams are allowed to join the 2017 spring trap shooting league. Learn more about how to start a new team. Once your team is approved, simply have a school official contact us and let us know!
