The Amateur Trapshooting Association serves as the governing body for the sport of American
style trapshooting. The ATA's mission is to promote and govern the sport throughout the world.
As the faithful protector of trapshooting, the ATA not only governs the sport's rules and regulations,
but also seeks ways to enhance the sport and stimulate participation. The ATA provides trophies,
financial assistance and event management support to the state and provincial associations.
The ATA has also been instrumental in developing programs to increase interest in the sport with
its creation of National Trapshooting Day, Satellite Grand Americans, Achievement Recognition
and other valuable programs.
