The purpose of the New Mexico State High School Clay Target League is to attract students in grades 6 through 12 to participate in shooting sports while creating a friendly competition among high schools throughout New Mexico. With the assistance of volunteer coaches the League allows high school teams from across the state to compete in sport shooting while eliminating the need to travel from school to school.
Who can join?
Any New Mexico student is eligible to participate if he/she:
- Is in grades 6 through 12, AND
- Possesses League-approved Firearm Safety Certification, AND
- Meets all school curricular activity eligibility requirements, AND
- If the team has room to accommodate the student athlete.
If your school does not have a trap team, you can start one at your school or join another team near your school district if the team can accommodate the student and the Activities Directors at both schools approve a cooperative sponsorship available from the League.
