Welcome the Atlantic Provinces Trapshooting Association's (APTA) website - the source for all things related to trapshooting in the Atlantic Provinces. Here you will find our affiliated clubs, local club results, and information on our annual Atlantic Provinces Trapshooting Championships - sponsored by the Amatuer Trapshooting Association.
The Atlantic Provinces Trapshooting Championships is your opportunity to shoot against some of the best trap shooters in the Atlantic Provinces. It does not matter whether you are an "AA" or "D" Class shooter, you’ll compete against shooters with similar averages and also get a chance to go shot for shot against the Atlantic Provinces Champions.
Start preparing for the Amateur Trapshooting Association shooting season by organizing some ATA Registered Shoots at your home club. ATA Registered Shoots do not have to be large or elaborate with prizes or marathon targets – get in the competition mode by holding a registered target event during any of your regular shoot days. It does not require a lot of extra effort to organize an ATA Registered Shoot but the rewards will be evident in your scores. Registered League Shoot and Big 50s are other options to acquire registered targets. In addition to shooting good practice targets you need to shoot ATA competition targets to improve your game. Try it, you will be surprised at the level of confidence it will bring to your shooting. ATA Registered Shoot Applications are available from the ATA (www.shootata.com) or from the APTA Executive. The normal procedure is to complete an application and forward it to the APTA, upon approval the ATA will forward all necessary forms and instructions to your club shortly afterwards. It’s a simple process that will have big rewards for your shooting.
