Grand Forks add trapshooting to extracurricular athletics

The Grand Forks School Board approved an agreement Monday that adds trapshooting to its extracurricular athletic program.

The program would be treated like any other district activity, according to Athletic Director Mark Rerick and two representatives of the Grand Forks Gun Club who spoke at the meeting. The Grand Forks Gun Club made the request to create the new program.

Students would be required to attend a safety meeting before participating, and one coach would be present for every 10 students, they said.

Similar programs exist for students in East Grand Forks, Larimore and at other schools, they said.
