Welcome to the Olympic Trap Team page. Everything you need to know about representing England in this discipline can be found here.
As its name indicates, this is one of the disciplines which forms part of the shooting programme at the Olympic Games. A trench in front of the shooting stands conceals 15 traps arranged with one group of three for each of the five shooting stands (or pegs). For more information please click here
To be eligible to represent any England Clay Target Shooting Team please see England Team Handbook. England Team Handbook
Please note that if a shooter has already represented another Country/Team in any discipline:
He/she must have been officially resident in the country he/she wishes to represent for a minimum continual period of one year.
A minimum period of two calendar years would have to elapse in which the member has not shot for any country.
Please read the England Team Handbook for England Team full eligibility rules, link above.
Below is the process used to decide selection for the England OTR Team for Home International Team matches only (under the jurisdiction of the ICTSC).
The 3 selection shoots in 2024 will run between April and July. To be considered for a place on the Olympic Trap England Team to compete in the Home International at least two scores from the three designated selection shoots should be submitted. The 2024 OTR Selection Dates are in conjunction with British Shooting SGS dates.
For all events when the scores are submitted, the scores (for each Selection Shoot) from High Gun are calculated on Points from High Gun x 125 and those with the lowest points will go through to represent England.
All scores will be checked and verified. In the event of a tie, lowest points from the final shoot will be used to decide the place.
The deadline for submitting these scores is TBA.
