The purpose of the USTA is to have fun,
while building friendships, old and new,
through organized competition that
supports all USTA clubs
and gives back to the shooting community
by providing a healthy environment
that fosters the growth of trapshooting in Utah.

"Where Shooters Matter!"
"Message" from the President
Now that winter has an icy grip on us, it’s time to focus on what we want to accomplish next year. Are you looking at breaking your first 25 straight, or possibly your first 100 straight? Is your goal to make the Utah State Team, or push towards being the All American team captain? What is it you want to do, and how hard are you willing to work to obtain it? Write down your goals, make a plan, and commit to achieving those results. With time, dedication, money, and a whole lot of consistency, you could be on your way.
There are turkey/meat shoots and 50 bird events always going on somewhere about every weekend for the little while, get out and have some fun! After all, isn’t that what this game is all about?
Purgatory will be hosting shoots and programs will be available on Utahtrap.com in the near future. Dates to mark on your calendar are:
January 25-26, 2015
March 27-29, 2015
Also, it’s a great time to start planning going to the Spring Grand in Tucson Arizona! Presquad.com is open and ready for you to throw your name in the ring. Dates for this amazing shoot with generally much better weather than we have up north are:
February 18th – March 1st
Perfect time to get out and break some targets!
Hope to see you all down there.
