Valley View offer the following shooting disciplines
English Sporting Clays first started in England in the early 20th Century, it has become the most popular form of clay shooting and is now shot all over the World. Clay targets are presented to the shooter in ways that mirror the flight pattern of game birds and provides a shooting environment that offers different layouts and a constant challenge.
The shooting course is laid out in stands or stations. On each stand clays are thrown in pairs, either simultaneously, on report or following and generally in three to five pairs per stand. A course consists of numerous stands, where 100 birds or more may be presented. The course setter can use any type of clay and with variation of speed, angle and distance can make a shoot as enjoyable and testing as possible.
Because they look very similar, Compak Sporting and Sportrap are easily confused. However, Compak Sporting has one less stand and a different order of shooting. There are three compulsory target trajectories, right to left, left to right and straight on, with two additional trajectories at the designers discretion. Five traps will be used to provide a variety of targets and a sign in front of each enclosure will inform the shooter of the combination of shots.
The competitions are mainly shot over 100 targets made up of four layouts of 25 targets, or "Parcours". GB selection shoots will have 150 – 200 targets, shot over 2 days, whilst the European and World Events have 200 targets, shot over 4 days.
Whilst we do not have a full time FITASC set up we are able to arrange events - please call us to discuss.
