Any high school can join!
With the assistance of hundreds of volunteer coaches and parents, student athletes who are at least 12 years old, 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 NYSHSCTL 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.
Any public, private or parochial high school in New York are invited to participate. Teams require:
• Approval from the school (School Board, Principal, and/or Activities/Athletic Director)
• Use of the school name
Schools are strongly encouraged to provide a lettering program and photo in the yearbook.

• Is is at least 12 years old, AND
• Possesses League-approved firearm safety certification, AND
• Meets all school curricular activity eligibility requirements, AND
