The Amateur Trapshooting Association (ATA) Grand American World Trapshooting Championships return to the World Shooting and Recreational Complex (WSRC) in Sparta Aug. 7 - 17.

The 1,600-acre WSRC has been home to the event since 2006.

More than 17,500 shooters are expected to participate in 24 competitive events.

From Aug. 3-6, the WSRC will also host the AIM Grand National Youth Trapshooting Championships.

AIM stands for Academics, Integrity, and Marksmanship and includes shooters age 23 and younger.

AIM shooters compete in the trap shooting disciplines of singles, doubles, and handicap and some competitors will receive collegiate scholarships during the event.

The WSRC features 120 trap fields spanning three-and-a-half miles; 1,000 campsites; full-service events center and vendor mall; and, on-site food service.

The Grand American is one of the nation’s oldest sporting events, begun in 1893.

The first Grand American using clay targets was held in 1900.
