Trap Shooting

Our club has a community of trapshooting enthusiasts who come together to enjoy the sport, improve their skills, and share their passion for shooting. We welcome all levels of experience, from beginners to seasoned veterans, and we strive to create a supportive and inclusive environment for everyone.

The Trap Shooting program runs from December until mid-April. The Club's Range, which is located at the end of the Yacht Club Dock, is open to all Sea Cliff Yacht Club members on Saturdays from 11:30am to 1:30pm.

The Club has two trap machines releasing the clays at a variety of target angles and in a random sequence. The shooter maybe faced with a straight-away target or one at an angle from the firing line. What target angle the shooter gets depends on where the machine is pointing at the time, thus increasing the difficulty.

Trap is generally shot with a 12 gauge over-under, pump or semi-auto shotgun. The Club provides the ammo restricted to steel target shells with a shot size between 7½ and 9.

Naturally, safety is paramount. Proper ear and eye protection are required for all persons while on the Dock. All shooters must demonstrate that they are familiar with the Club’s Conduct and Firearms Safety Regulations. Children of Club members over the age of 14 are invited to participate but must be always accompanied by a parent while on the Dock.

Whether you are a beginner who is just starting out, or a seasoned shooter who is looking for a new challenge, our trapshooting program is the perfect place to hone your skills and connect with like-minded individuals. We invite you to come and check us out and see what we have to offer!
