Thanks for supporting our program in 2019!

WE WELCOME ALL CLAY SHOOTERS! COME ON DOWN AND BREAK SOME CLAYS.
Tues & Thurs evenings (7:00 PM to 9:30 PM) and Sunday mornings (09:00 AM to 1:00 PM)
We are planning to have a full shoot (trap, skeet & five stand) at least once a month. As always,
we shoot year round. We welcome non-members and guests at skeet, trap and 5-stand.
Over the last two years we have taken on big projects in resurfacing both skeet fields. We have also
bought wireless controls for all three fields thanks to the generosity from our shooters. This year
we have completed the 5-stand expansion with 3 additional machines and a tower. This gives
us a total of 10 machines with many presentations of targets to shoot at.
Skeet & Trap
Riverside has a robust shotgun program with open shoots scheduled several times a week. We are a "green" facility, utilizing biodegradable targets and requiring steel shot. Lead shot is forbidden at Riverside. Our three fields are configured to support different shooting programs including skeet, trap and 5-stand.
Three Shotgun Fields with remotely controlled automatic trap throwers. We also have lights on two fields for night shooting.
Upper Field configured for Skeet and 5-Stand (lighted)
Middle Field configured for Skeet & Trap (lighted)
Lower Field configured for Trap
Tuesday Night Shoots, Tuesdays 7:00p - 9:30p.
Thursday Night Shoots, Thursdays 7:00p - 9:30p.
Sunday Morning Shoots, Sundays 9:00a - 1:00p.
Wanna try it? We welcome members and non-members to our skeet and trap fields. If you are new to the sport or want some help we have NRA Certified Instructors to help you at no charge. We will even let you borrow a gun for your first time. Due to the increased number of new shooters to our program, we now ask that you email the Skeet & Trap chairman (email@example.com) to make an appointment.

There are NRA Certified Instructors to give safety classes, instruction and full supervision during the entire event. We supply the guns and everything else needed for lots of fun.
