With 8,900 participants, Trapshooting is now the 2nd largest High School sport in the State of Minnesota – 2nd only to football!
The High School Trapshooting grand finale is hosted in Alexandria Minnesota and is currently the single largest shooting tournament in the world.
The interest in this sport for High School participants has exploded from 30 participants in 2008 to it’s current levels, and is expected to continue growing. The key to the growth of the sport is all athletes are on the same team. It is co-ed, and has a strong appeal to the adaptive sports athletes to participate at the varsity level.
Max Baumgartner (pictured below) a 2015 graduate and current field technician for Parallel Technologies had the opportunity to shoot in the largest shooting tournament in the world. Max was a member of the Champlin Park Rebels Trap Team.
