Ontario boasts the largest contingency of competitive and recreational trapshooters in Canada as well as friendly and well-run facilities all across the province at which you can safely enjoy this great sport.
Trapshooting, a wholesome, outdoor sport that promotes good sportsmanship and fantastic friendships, is enjoyed by all age groups – from kids to seniors. Many families enjoy the sport together! Have a look at this video taken at our 100th Provincial championship.
Our OPTA Member Clubs look forward to hosting you! Whether you are a first-timer or beginner wanting assistance, a recreational trapshooter who relishes a fun day of breaking clay targets, or a seasoned competitor participating at one of the many exciting Amateur Trapshooting Association/Ontario Provincial Trapshooting Association tournaments held throughout the year, you are most welcome at any of our Clubs.
Our website has been created to provide valuable information for our members, as well as our friends and competitors from across Canada, the United States and around the world who are finding out that trapshooting in Ontario is second-to-none!

How do you join the Ontario Provincial Trapshooting Association (OPTA)?
It’s very simple!
An OPTA membership which costs $20 for a year (Sept 1-Aug 31) can be attained at any member club at any time or when you are attending your first OPTA/ATA sanctioned competition or online.
For an introduction to the sport, the ATA Hall of Fame has some great information on their website.
The CCFR, NFA and CSSA have joined together to challenge the government’s OIC in court. Consider becoming a member of these organizations, and donating above and beyond that if you can to support the legal action. Stand together with all firearm owners and JOIN THE FIGHT!
