About Trap Shooting at SAU

Responding to one of the fastest growing youth sporting events in the region, Southern Arkansas University launched trap shooting as a club sport during the fall of 2019. Thanks to generous donors, SAU has the only trap shooting facility located on a public university campus.

The SAU team competes in ACUI tournaments, shooting singles, doubles, and sporting clays. SAU’s range currently offers 3 trap shooting fields, but team members are supported in individual efforts to train and represent the institution at competitions in sporting clay events by training off-site for sporting clay competition.

SAU complies with Arkansas laws concerning guns on campus. A secure on-campus storage facility is available to trap shooting team members for on-campus gun storage, with extremely limited access and enhanced protective measures. Students will be required to sign a waiver releasing the institution from liability should a breech occur. 

Any current student is eligible to practice and participate on the Trap Shooting Team. Undergraduate students must maintain a 2.0 GPA; graduate students must maintain a 3.0 GPA, following ACUI eligibility guidelines. The SAU coaching staff squads teams based on individual performance as recorded from practice reports. The opportunity to represent SAU at collegiate events is competitive and not automatically awarded.

Yes. The team competes in collegiate competition circuits, and students have opportunities at state, regional, and national levels.

No, students provide their own guns, which are stored in a secure campus location and strict procedures are followed to check guns in and out.

The range is equipped for participants to shoot 3 trap disciplines: American, Doubles, and European as well as skeet. The range is designed for both trap and skeet. Currently only trap is shot at the facility. The ability to throw skeet will be developed in the future.
