There is a new sport emerging in Marshall County, one without a ball, bat, glove, or goalposts. This sport, trap shooting, will test a participant's hand-eye coordination and nerves, and at the same time instill gun safety, commitment, responsibility, leadership and teamwork. The Marshall County Trap Shooting Team is open to students in grades fifth through twelfth, male or female. 

According to Dorris Wayne Weaver, "It also provides the opportunity for school-age young adults to showcase their competitive shooting skills and earn state and national recognition.  It improves small game hunting skills, such as dove, quail and turkey."
