Clay Target

Adviser(s): John Porisch

The team also depends on many parent volunteers and the support staff at the Minnetonka Sportsmens Club (7480 County Rd 15, Mound, MN 55364).


Clay Target at BSM is a 7 - 12 grade activity for both girls and boys. There are two opportunities to participate in Clay Target at BSM through the year. The fall season, or practice season, is 6 weeks in duration and is open for all 7-12 graders. The spring season, or competitive season, is 11 - 12 weeks in duration and is open to all 7-12 graders. The spring season provides an opportunity to letter and includes an optional opportunity to participate in the world’s largest shooting event, contested in mid-June at Alexandria’s gun club.

Time Commitment: The fall season (practice) starts mid-September and ends around MEA (end of October), with shooting nights happening on Wednesday or Monday evenings, 4:30 p.m. - sundown. Meet in the spring season competitively beginning the first week in April and runs until the first week of June (with an optional shoot in Alexandria mid-June).
