Clay Target

Be a part of our squad!

Join a field of robust collegiate competition with Bethany Viking’s Clay Target Team. Young men and women are able to compete in Minnesota and surrounding states at a high level for all four years of their undergraduate careers.

  • With approval from Bethany’s Board in February of 2021, competition will begin for the Vikings in trap and then will likely expand to skeet and sporting clays covering the three main shotgun sports.
  • Bethany’s team will grow to a roster of 20 -30 men/women, likely two squads (Varsity/JV).
  • Top varsity competitors will travel and compete in a fall season and spring season.
  • Up to $2,000 annual activity scholarships may be available for serious Clay Target Competitors.
"The addition of clay target sports at Bethany will be the first in our region. We are thrilled to have a world class facility, the Caribou Club located in Le Sueur, as our home field and range."

Bethany’s home for Clay Target competitions and live practice is the Caribou Club in Le Sueur. Caribou has a skeet facility, numerous sporting clay stations, and six trap stations. A team storage area for shells and other equipment along with a Viking branded trap station will make for a welcoming home range for the Vikings. The club house allows for informal social time with fellow competitors, safety instructors, law enforcement professionals, ROTC groups, DNR employees, and internationally-acclaimed marksman.

Gold medalist Randy Voss owns and operates the facility and is a champion for youth development.
