About the Team


We consistently win National Championship titles. Learn more about our accomplishments.

Practice: Wednesday and Friday afternoons, plus weekend/flexible scheduling

Home Club: Jacksonville Clay Target Sports with some additional visits to Amelia Shotgun Sports

Dues: $695 annually

Founded in 2009 as a club sport, the Jacksonville University Sporting Clays, Skeet and Trap Team became a varsity team sport in April 2011. We have the proud distinction of being a 33-time (Divisional/Event) ACUI and SCTP Collegiate HOA National Champion, and a number of our students have garnered All American status and even been invited to the U.S. Olympic Training Camp.


Under the guidance of Founding Program Director and Head Coach David T. Dobson, the JUSSTC is run by the members of the team. Even team leadership is voted upon by membership, rather than being assigned by the coaches.


Our home club is the Jacksonville Clay Target Sports, but we also visit Amelia Shotgun Sports. Federal law prohibits the presence of either guns or ammunition on campus, so we store our equipment at an offsite location. Team members have access to the gun safes at any time during normal business hours.


We practice on Wednesday and Friday afternoons and on Saturdays and Sundays. We have flexible practice scheduling so that team members can prioritize their academic responsibilities.


Members pay dues of $695 per year. We work with all members to make this element practical and affordable. Dues cover targets, shells, equipment, and all travel costs (except food) when we practice or compete.


Although we are a varsity team, we welcome all newcomers, regardless of experience. No one gets 'cut' from the team. We are also proud to have a number of veterans on the team. Thank you for your service. For more information on joining the JU Shooting Team, contact David T.
