2018 Spring Trap League

Spring Trap League starts Tuesday, March 20th, and runs 10 weeks through May 22nd.

Shoot 10 weeks, and your top 8 scores will count in the standings. Team and individual prizes will be awarded at the end of the season.

Teams consist of 5 team members, including subs. Each Tuesday, teams shoot 25 targets from the 16 yard line, then another 25 targets at a handicap yardage determined by the top 4 scores of the first round. If you don't know how scoring works, let us know and we'll help you out!

Tuesday evenings, please come out between 5:15-5:30 p.m. to help set up, and then shooting starts at 5:30 p.m. until dark.

Cost is $12 for two rounds of 50 targets for each team member per night. There is also a $12 one-time-per-season League fee for non-Members. This fee is waived for SSP Members!

We know that Spring weather can be unpredictable, so don't worry if you can't shoot on any particular Tuesday - makeups will be accepted through May 29th. Remember that Members have 24/7 access, so teams with a SSP Member can come out any time and shoot makeups. You can also shoot 2 rounds on one evening, if enough fields are available.

If you don't have a team, come out and we'll get you one!

To sign up your team, download a team registration form from our website and bring it with you the first night of shooting. The league fee of $12 for each non-Member is due the first night of shooting.
