Burnsville TrapShooting Team was developed in 2010 with 30 students and a few parent volunteers. Today, the team has grown to 75 shooters with an army of enthusiastic volunteers supporting it. The team continues to grow, continues to win, and is a team you can be proud of!
The team has 2 seasons - Spring and Fall. Spring is the competition season which ends in Alexandria, MN with the world’s largest shooting sport event. This is an 8 day event with over 200 High Schools and over 10,000 shooters involved. The Fall season is more developmental with additional training on fundamentals. Each season is 8 - 10 weeks long.
As with all sports teams, there are expenses that both the athletes and the team cover. The athlete must provide their own shotgun, ear, and eye protection. They must also purchase their consumables - a minimum of 20 boxes of ammunition and 500 targets. These supplies need to be replenished for each athlete, each season. Any additional expenses such as shooting vests, training exercises, awards, etc...are covered by the team. In order to cover these additional expenses, the Booster Club holds various fundraisers throughout the year. The athletes also volunteer to work at community events to help raise money. While these efforts help, the longevity of the team really depends on the support and generosity of individuals, local businesses, and the community.
