The new sport of trap shooting sparked many questions from the Kenyon-Wanamingo School Board at their meeting Monday evening. Teacher Rich Kincaid addressed the board and explained the basics of the competition. While the program is governed by the Minnesota State High School League policies, he clarified that it is not totally a league sport. Rather, it falls more into the same category as cheer competition and robotics.

Kincaid explained that the program costs will be expenses for the state tournament, such as transportation and lodging. The league suggests one coach be present for every 10 student participants. Future costs would include varsity letters and certificates.

    I never said that it wasn't a good sport for young people, I just feel that it shouldn't be included in the school system at this time.

    @purpleturtle, Negativity, give me a break, trapshooting as a sport is perhaps the only sport in school nowadays that teaches Extreme Responsibility for firearms as well as knowledge in safely handling a firearm. Coordination of large & small muscle groups, rapidly increases reflexes for rapid & slow reactions, eye coordination. High levels of concentration & dedication, as an individual as well as a team sport. Trapshooting & skeet shooting are fantastic tools for young folks. It gives them a lifetime sport to keep body & mind sharp, whereas, football, hockey, baseball, volleyball, cheerleading, & band are activities that are sports that will only be in their lives for a few years.
    Perhaps if more were involved there would be a lot less playing the video games that pollute so many minds.
    Time to crawl out of that purple shell & get a life, & see what it is all about, find me one of these young folks that have gone bad, you won't they are responsible citizens. it is a fantastic sport, skeet shooting should also be included as well as the biathlon, Lifetime skills.

    I realize that trap shooting is a regulated sport, but it just seems to me, that at this particular time, having any involvement in a school system with anything involving guns, regulated or not, is a very poor decision for this school board. There has to be other related sports that does not create such negativity. I feel that the school board should put this on hold, and not spend any taxpayers money for this, especially at this particular time.
