    Spring Trap Season


    Lake Shore High School offers a variety of sports and activities throughout the year, including the upcoming Trap Shooting season.

    The 2024 trap team consists of 32 members who will begin practicing once the season starts. It’s worth noting that Lake Shore is one of the few schools in the area that offers a trap team. To join the team, you would need to talk to the head coach, Christopher Hubbard.

    Trap shooting is a precision sport that requires a lot of teamwork. Nathan Smith, senior team member, says, “Trap is a sport for camaraderie and discipline. We work as a team to achieve our best scores, not inherently competing against other teams but competing against ourselves.”

    Joining a team can be an amazing experience, both personally and socially. Not only does it allow you to become part of a group of like-minded individuals, but it can also offer you a sense of purpose and accomplishment.

    The team travels to Richmond Sports Club to practice during the trap season. During practice, they use flying clay pigeons as targets. They also travel for big tournaments like states and nationals. Trap is for all sorts of people. Although the team welcomes students from 6th to 12th grade, most people interested in joining the team do so during their freshman year.

    Joining the trap team has several benefits. As Smith pointed out, it helps in building discipline and camaraderie. Being a part of the team not only brings joy but also helps in character-building through teamwork.

    Some students may think that trap is boring or may not have heard of it. However, according to Noah Bain, junior, “It’s quite fun, actually!”

    Joining the trap shooting team at Lake Shore High School can be a rewarding experience both personally and socially. Whether you’re new to the sport or an experienced shooter, the team welcomes all students who are interested in joining. So, if you’re looking for a fun and challenging extracurricular activity, consider talking to the head coach, Hubbard.
