Sporting Clays League Rules & Regulations

Spring & Summer Sporting Clay League Information

Both the Spring & Summer leagues will be a competitive “for fun” league with prize money paid to the top 25% of teams along with a weekly Lewis class payout.  Each league will run for 10 shoot weeks.  Please read below for League details, if you have any additional questions please email,  

Deadline to register for the Spring League Sunday, March 10th
Deadline for the Summer League is Sunday, June 9th.

League Details:
$490 entry fee for the 10 week league.  Prize money will be paying out to a weekly High Overall (HOA) and Lewis class of 3 random paying $50 to each placing.  No split money, ties will be broken by rolling dice for the tie breaker station on your scorecard.  Team payout will be to the top 25% of teams.

If there are weather cancellations, the league will be extended additional weeks for a total of 10 complete shoot weeks.  Any weather cancellations will be made via email, however we shoot rain or shine and will only postpone due to safety or extreme weather conditions. 

100 Targets per week that must be shot between 2:30PM and completed by 7:00PM or Sunset (whichever is earlier) on Wednesday nights.  You must provide your own ammunition.  Firearms are available for rent and ammo is available to be purchased at Colorado Clays. NSCA Scoring rules will be in place (although again, non-registered league)

No individual shooter rain checks or makeup dates allowed.  If you miss a scheduled week or you are unable to shoot that night, you get a “dog score” which will be 5 targets below what your current average score is.  There are NO refunds for missed weeks.

How teams work – Teams of 5 shooters will be setup via a draft style selection the week before league begins.  This allows a fair opportunity for all teams to have the chance to win, there will be no “ringer” teams.  This also eliminates the need for shooters to build a full team to enter the league.  How the draft works is that team captains will be selected from the prior league average scores and from the remaining league participants the captains will complete a ‘draft’ of who is on each team (think NFL/NBA style draft).  You do not need to shoot with your drafted team, and you do not need to do anything to be part of the draft, all you do is sign up for the league!  We will announce the teams before league begins via email. 

This will be euro rotation squads which means you can shoot with anyone you want at any time on league day. If you want to meet new people, shoot with a new group!  Historically many shooters start shooting between 3:30-4:30.  Please have 3+ shooters per squad when shooting.  If you need another shooter on your squad, just wait at the picnic tables for someone to show up.

As this is a competitive fun league with discounted target costs from Colorado Clays, shooters will be held to a STRICT one show pair per squad.  

Weekly scores are sent out via email along with the winners of the Lewis class prizes.  The following week an envelope will be available at the Colorado Clays front desk with your prize money in it.
