“For the past two years, we have been asked to do for shotgun sports what we have done for action shooting sports,” says Julianna Crowder, founder of AG & AG. “We are excited about growing the shotgun community and bringing women together from across the country for a fun event.”

The Women’s Clays Championship is a two-day event comprising sporting clays, 5-stand and trap, as well as a fun flurry game and warm-up practice. Competitors can opt into a Lewis Class payout for two different sporting clays courses.

For those new to shotgun sports or looking to advance their skill sets, CZ-USA pro staff will be offering clinics prior to the competition.

Crowder says that AG & AG is responding to the demand for female-only opportunities where competitors can advance their skills. The shoot is expected to draw more than 100 competitors. “In addition to the education and event experience, we will also have camaraderie to strengthen the sisterhood of women shooters, motivate them, and continue to build a strong female presence in the world of shotgun sports,” said Crowder.
