Clay Target Team
CDH 2020 Spring Clay Target Season Information
Welcome to the Cretin-Derham Hall Clay Target Shooting Team home page. Our team competes in Trap, Skeet and Sporting Clays and is comprised of both boys and girls. Our primary competitive season is in the spring although we do have practice in the fall as well.
The only pre-requisite for participation is each athlete must possess his/her Hunter and Safety Education Certificate offered by the state DNR before they can compete. If you do not have this, please contact Gary Fischbach, our firearms safety coach. School Letters are awarded at season's end to those who meet the criteria offered by the team. This sport offers both young men and women an opportunity to compete side by side, and possibly discover hidden talents they didn't know they had. The shooting sports require good hand and eye coordination, and the maturity to stay focused on safety procedures.
Questions we are asked every year include, “Do I need to have past shooting or hunting experience?” and “Do I need to own a shotgun?” The answer to both of these is no. We take beginners every year; we train you in both the safety and skill of the game. While it’s preferred at some point to have your own shotgun, we do not recommend buying one until you have had the opportunity to sample a few different guns. The team does have a limited supply of club guns for use.
Mr. Chad Anderson is the Clay Target Team Activity Chair. Field coaches include: Jason Naber, Gary Fischbach and Keith Jorgensen.
We will continue doing our best as adult facilitators and coaches to help introduce the Shotgun Shooting Sports to a generation of young people that may have had limited exposure to any of the shooting sports. We will focus on safety, fun, and competition as we grow.
The Clay Target Team will schedule practices on Wednesdays during the fall. Practice starts immediately after school at the South St. Paul Rod and Gun Club. Stay tuned for more important dates.
For the Spring of 2020 the Clay Target Team will hold practices on Wednesdays 3-5:30 and Saturday 10-12. All practice is held at the South St. Paul Rod and Gun Club.
