Scholastic clays is a co-ed shooting sports opportunity that provides an entry into a lifetime of enjoyment in the clay target sports. If you are between the ages of 10 and 18, come out and see what scholastic clays is all about. No prior shooting experience is necessary and DBCL membership is not required to participate.

Under the direction of the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF), the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) provides school-age participants in grades 12 and under with the opportunity to develop their competitive shooting skills and earn state and national recognition. The program is designed to instill safe firearms handling, commitment, responsibility, leadership and teamwork in all participants.

AIM is the official youth program of the Amateur Trapshooting Association (ATA). The purpose of AIM for ATA is to provide a safe and positive experience with firearms for youth, elementary school through college age, which encourages good sportsmanship and personal responsibility through competition to make trapshooting a life-long activity. AIM was created to instill the elements of Academics, Integrity, and Marksmanship in today’s youth, who are the future of our sport. Youth shooters will learn the fundamentals of trapshooting, proper shooting etiquette, firearm safety, and academic responsibility.

Classification by age group for AIM participants is as follows:

  • 11 and under – Presub
  • 12-14 — Sub-Junior
  • 15-18 — Junior
  • 18-20 – Graduates
  • 18-23 – Collegiate

The season runs from January until mid July. Practices are generally held twice per month on Saturdays from 8:00 am to noon. Scheduled conference meets in the Kettle Moraine Trapshooting Conference (KMTC) happen on Monday or Tuesday evenings from mid March to mid May. Our season wraps up with a team picnic and state shoots in June / July. Attendance at every practice and competition is not required so there is flexibility to fit this into your busy schedule.
