All Southwest Tech students are eligible to participate in the new Trap Shooting Team.
Southwest Tech is excited to announce that we are starting a competitive trapshooting team starting in the Fall of 2016. The team will begin practice shortly after the Fall semester begins in August and hopes to compete in competitions regionally and nationally within the first year.
The team will be active in American Trap and will be considering competitions hosted through the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP), Amateur Trapshooting Association (ATA), and Association of College Unions International (ACUI).
