The Irondale Clay Target Team offers co-ed Trap and Skeet programs under the administration of the USA High School Clay Target League, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and is an independent provider of shooting sports as an extracurricular co-ed and adaptive activity for high schools and students in grades 9 through 12. The organization’s priorities are safety, fun, and marksmanship – in that order. The League attracts student athletes that have earned their firearm safety certification to participate in shooting sports while creating a “virtual” competition among high school teams at no cost to the schools. Family travel costs are minimal because practice and competition are conducted at a shooting range near the school’s location. The IHS Clay Target team shoots on Sunday afternoons from the first week of April to the end of May at the Metro Gun Club in Blaine. The prerequisites include to have completed the MN DNR firearms safety certificate and to be a 9th grade student at IHS.
The league is also the safest sport in high school, with no reported injuries since the inception of the League in 2001.
