Clay Target

Legacy Christian Academy offers students in grades 6-12 the opportunity to compete in the fastest-growing MSHSL sponsored activity, Clay Target. Clay Target is great for physical activity, group cooperation, and the student socialization it provides. Students at LCA can earn lettering points by participating in Clay Target and given the flexible schedule can participate alongside another LCA sport.

Minnesota DNR Firearms Safety Certification

You must be 11 years old to take the class and must turn 12 prior to the season. See Registration Information for current year deadlines. Legacy has a coach on staff that can complete this certification or you can take a course locally.

Trap Team (Spring)

Legacy’s Trap Team meets two nights a week on Monday and Thursday for nine weeks during the spring season (April- June). One of the nights is a practice night and one is for a competition score. Currently, the LCA team shoots at Beaverbrook Sportsmen’s Club in East Bethel.  The season culminates with an MSHSL-sponsored state tournament in June. As a club sport, there is no school fee to participate and given the flexible schedule, students can participate alongside another spring sport.


Season Recaps


The Legacy Trap Team took 1st place in their conference with 7 of their 15 team members placing in the top 25. On the boys’ team, Ben Stroyny ’23 finished 2nd and Alex Domeyer ’21 finished 4th. For the girls’ team, Cadence Werth ’22 placed 1st and Jessa Delich ’22 finished in 3rd.



This years team had many firsts on it and along with that some great shooting.

  • Largest trap team ever at 28 members.
  • Most athletes lettering in one year at 8.(Requires season avg. of 19+)
  • Most team members finishing in the top 10 in the conference with 6.
  • Most new team members in one year at 12.
  • Highest team finish ever at 2nd in the conference.
  • Highest girl finish ever at 2nd place and 9th overall in the conference.
  • Coach and volunteers most ever at 15.

For the third time ever in our 6 year history, we had a team member, J Olson, win the conference individual title and D Delich only two-tenths behind at 3rd. C Werth also finished 2nd overall in girls missing first by only two-tenths and finishing 9th overall in the conference.

A very strong regular-season team with a solid mix of returning athletes and many new, younger upcoming shooters for the years to come.  All athletes improved throughout the season and had a strong showing in general.

At the state championship in Alexandria, we had two shooters place in the top 26 out of 340+ shooters.  Both C Sharp and A Domeyer finished with 95 out of 100 targets on the day.  Overall the team finished 16th out of 33 on the day and did very well.

2018 Mid-Season Update

The Trap season is now half over and our shooters have been consistently improving despite the wind.  A couple of weeks ago we honored one of our coaches who passed away last fall.  Coach “Krispy” Krzyska was a strong encourager, and a great proponent of the shooting sports.  Each team member wears a patch on their jersey to remember him.

In early June, we look forward to competing in the State Shoot located in Alexandria, MN.  Teams compete over the course of the week to find out who the top shooters in Minnesota.  If you are interested in learning more about the Trap team or the shooting sports, you are welcome to join us at our annual picnic on Thursday, June 7 at 5pm.  We will be grilling, shooting, and celebrating our achievements this season at our home Range: Beaver Brook Gun Club in Ham Lake.
