A second-year program at Sturgeon Bay schools is gaining popularity and is helping students become more disciplined. The Clipper Clays is the target shooting team at Sturgeon Bay. Each week participants go to the Door County Rod and Gun Club and try to shoot as best they can to gain points against other teams in Wisconsin. There are different levels of teams depending on the age and skill of the student shooting. There are two middle school divisions as well as varsity and junior varsity for high school. Thirty two shooters were on all teams last year and this year there are 48. Matt Propsom is the head coach of the Clipper Clays and he says it’s important for students to try out for trap shooting because it’ll help you become more disciplined in life.
It’s early on in the shooting season as they try to keep it in between the winter and spring sports so more students can participate.
