Trap Shooting

WHAT IS PARA TRAP SHOOTING?

Open to athletes who have a physical impairment, the discipline of Para Trap Shooting is based on the Olympic Trap discipline.

Athletes use a shotgun to hit 'clays' which are propelled into the air from machines on the ground. Athletes strive to make as many 'hits' (when a clay is broken) as possible.

Through the competition, athletes shoot from across 5 central positions on the range. Athletes shoot at 125 clays in the qualification round.

CLASSIFICATION

Our current classification system is under a two year review period (September 2017 - September 2019). We have 3 different classes/events that athletes are eligible to compete in. They are:
