Clay Target Team

CDH 2019 Spring Clay Target Season Information


The Cretin-Derham Hall Clay Target Shooting Team is in our seventh year of competition. This year we have Skeet shooting as well as Sporting Clays.

The only pre-requisite for season 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. As well, this sport is co-educational in nature, offering 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. We encourage all students to give it a try regardless of previous experience. You may be very pleasantly surprised.

Questions we are asked every year are “do I need to have past shooting or hunting experience” or “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.

Your field coaches, Dave Becker, Gary Fischbach, and Jason Nabor, are all NRA Certified Level I Shotgun Coaches. Aaron Benner, the Dean of Students/Diversity Coordinator, has joined the coaching staff and will be our "in school" contact.

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, respectively as we grow. 

Warm regards,

Dave Becker
Cretin-Derham Hall
Head Clay Target Shooting Coach

2018 MNYESS Awards


Our CDH Trap Shooting Team finished first in Conference 1 of the Minnesota State High School Clay Target League.

By finishing first and our average scores, we were invited to shoot in the National Tournament in Michigan. Because we are unable to field a squad of 5 due to schedule, we will not be taking advantage of this accomplishment.



Our team competed very well in the Minnesota Youth Education of the Shooting Sports.  MNYESS facilitates the shooting of the disciplines of Trap, Skeet, and Sporting Clays. There is also the Tri-Combo event for the kids that shoot all three disciplines.
