What are registered targets?

Registered targets are trapshooting competitions where the final score for each shooters is sent off to the ATA and added to that shooters yearly, and lifetime total and average. Since all registered shoots are governed by the same rules, this allows shooters to be classified and handicapped with fellow shooters from around the country.

A registered shoot is a shooting program pre-approved by the ATA and scheduled well in advance so that all shooters know, and can attend the program. A typical program involves one day of shooting for 100 singles, 100 handicap, and 100 doubles targets.

There are many variations with major tournaments encompassing anywhere from a weekend or long weekend to an entire week. The Grand American Trap shoot is the super bowl of trapshooting and takes place each year in August at the home grounds in Sparta, Illinois.
