World’s Largest Shooting Sporting Event in Alexandria


The Alexandria Shooting Park is hosting the World’s Largest Shooting Sporting event. The 2023 Trap Shooting Championship is running now through June 20th. Officials say that more than 340 high school teams and 8,000 student athletes are competing this week! Admission is free!  Details can be found here! 

Nine full days of competition will feature new teams and participants – June 12-20, 2023!
Each team is assigned a tournament day as determined by their Class and Conference designation. This allows all teams to complete their competition (Novice, Junior Varsity, and Varsity) on a single day while allowing competition among teams with a similar team size.

This Championship is the qualifying team competition for the State Tournament. The Minnesota State High School League’s State Tournament is on June 23rd at the Minneapolis Gun Club in Prior Lake.
