Rugby Public School District Explores Trapshooting as an Extra-Curricular Activity

By Staff | Apr 29, 2016

In North Dakota, there are currently 13 high schools that participate in Trapshooting. The sport is beginning to increase in popularity across the state. The Rugby Shooting Club would like the Rugby Public School District to establish a school sanctioned trapshooting team. Student-athletes would compete in the spring at the Rugby Shooting Club. Teams practice and compete at their home courses and use a virtual scoring system to compete against other teams. There would be minimal travel involved for the student-athlete. Students in grades 6-12 would be eligible to compete and all athletes would have to complete an approved hunter’s safety program. All weapons will be stored at the gun club and will not be allowed on school property. Members of the trapshooting team will follow all eligibility rules established by the school district, which work in conjunction with the North Dakota High School Activities Association. The board is developing policy regarding this request. Please feel free to provide input.
