Welcome to the Riverdale High School Trap Team
Trapshooting is one of the three major disciplines of competitive clay pigeon shooting. Trapshooting is typically shot with a 12 gauge shotgun, but a 20 gauge shotgun may be used. Trapshooting has been a sport since the late 18th century. Many colleges have trapshooting teams.
We encourage both males and females to participate in the team. Just show up to a practice to learn more.
