Skeet

Jacksonville Clay Target Sports Skeet Field

The Jacksonville Clay Target Sports facility provides 10 skeet fields, 5 of which are lighted. Each year the club hosts several large NSSA-registered shoots. These shoots offer fun and camaraderie for skeet shooters of all levels. In addition to competitive shoots, monthly registered targets may be shot any time the club is open. Skeet shooting is a great game for practicing your clay target shooting skills.  Clinics and lessons are available by our NSSA-certified instructors

For upcoming events and activities, visit the JCTS calendar. For questions on our skeet programs, contact Skeet Chairman Russ Naples, [email protected] or call Pro Shop at 904-757-4584.

Regular Skeet

A round of skeet consists of 25 targets in a set sequence of singles and simultaneous doubles. Squads of five shooters take their turns from eight shooting stations. Each squad member takes two singles and one double on stations 1, 2, 6, and 7. Two singles are taken from stations 3, 4, 5, and 8. The 25th target is taken after the first target is missed or as a final target (low house #8) after 24 kills. Targets are thrown a distance of 60 yards. Variations in the angles of the targets presented the "high" and "low" house result from the shooter moving from station to station. American Skeet is the only discipline that has regular, specific tournament events for sub-bore shotguns: 12, 20, 28, and .410.

Skeet Doubles

Shooters, in squads of five, start on station 1 shooting one pair of doubles each to station 7. Then they reverse, shooting on a pair each from stations 7 through 1. On station 4, shooters must shoot the high house target first. On reversing, (shooting 7 through 1), they must shoot the low house target first. In tournaments, the events are on a total of 50 (or 100) targets with the last pair shot on station 1.

International Skeet

An International Skeet field has the same dimensions as an American skeet field. The main differences of the game are that the target is a bit larger (110mm versus 108mm), is thrown farther & faster than an American skeet target ([email protected] versus [email protected]), there is a random 0 to 3 second delay from when the shooter calls for the bird, the shooter must shoot from a "low gun" position. We offer International skeet on field 7, upon request.
