The board is selected through general membership vote based on the candidates suitable qualifications and contributions to the sport of trapshooting. Please join us at our next AGM, during the annual tournament.
The Canadian Trapshooting Association is a non-profit society originally established in 1956 to host the "Dominion of Canada Trapshooting Championships". This would soon become the premier annual trap tournament for top level competitors across the country, for the purpose of crowning a Canadian ATA Champion and making the Canadian Olympic Trapshooting Team selections prior to Canada'a construction of their first International Style trap range.
Since its inception, the CTA has successfully hosted some of the best local and visiting shooters from across North America, including many present and future Trapshooting Hall of Famers! The first Canadians were held at the Original Calgary Gun Club in 1956, and the next year in Harrow Ontario.
