The Virginia Youth Trapshooting League (VYTL), a newly formed high school trap shooting league for any shooters up to 22 years of age, kicked off it’s inaugural season and first week recently. Shooters from throughout Virginia were able to compete at their local clubs and have their scores compiled with their peers from other parts of the state. This new format is very exciting and gives each participant a way to test their skills against a larger than normal pool of competitors each week.
The VYTL is a 7 week competition with each shooter’s best 6 scores counting towards end of season awards and bragging rights. Shooting will continue through May 10th with the season culminating on May 16th at the Virginia AIM Trap Shooting Championships in Lynchburg, VA.
