Thief River Falls Clay Target League

                                                   Welcome to Prowler Clay Target League

The Prowler Trap and Skeet Teams belong to the Minnesota State High School Clay Target League, in Minnesota alone there were

11,040 student participants from 343 high school teams taking part as one of the high school clay target leagues affiliated with the USA High School Clay Target League (USAHSCTL) this spring. The League is the largest high school clay target shooting sports program in the nation, with over 20,000 students participating in League programs during the 2016-17 school year.  Participating students are guided by nearly 5,000 volunteers who serve as coaches, range safety officers, and additional support.

The League’s co-ed and adaptive nature are key attractions to high schools nationwide. The League is fully Title IX compliant with both male and female athletes competing on the same team. Additionally, it’s an ‘adaptive’ sport, which allows students with physical disabilities to take part. “We take pride in that athletes of all types are able to participate in clay target shooting,” John Nelson, Vice President of the USAHSCTL, remarked. “The League’s True Team scoring system is designed so that everyone’s score matters, not just the top shooters on a team.”

The League is the safest sport in high school, with not one reported injury since the inception of the League in 2001. To participate in the League, each team must have the approval of their school’s administration. The League is the only 100% school-approved clay target shooting sports program in America.

The League attracts student athletes to participate in shooting sports while creating a ‘virtual’ competition among high school teams throughout each state. Family travel is minimal because practice and competition are conducted at a shooting range near the school¹s location. Conferences are determined by team size rather than the geographic location for fair competition. Athletes earn True Team scoring points as determined by their performance and ranking against all athlete scores within their team’s conference. The team score and overall standing are calculated by adding the earned points from qualifying athletes and posted on the League’s website. Athletes and their families track their individual and team performance on their phone, tablet or computer via the Shooter Performance Tracker.

This program consists of Trap and Skeet teams that are open to students in grades 6th - 12th. Must have completed Minnesota Firearm Safety Program and have a valid certificate number to participate.
