Outdoor specialty retailer helps make Utah’s first Olympic-style international bunker trap a reality

PLEASANT GROVE, Utah, July 29, 2020 – Sportsman’s Warehouse Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: SPWH), https://www.sportsmans.com, recently donated funds to assist the Utah Youth Education in Shooting Sports (UTYESS) with their Bunker Trap Project. Ground will be broken on Utah’s first Olympic-style international bunker trap in the next two weeks.

Currently, youth shooters in Utah do not have access to an international-style bunker trap to learn, practice and qualify for Olympic and Junior Olympic events.  International bunker traps offer five shooting stations with 15 fixed traps and throw unexpected targets directly in front of the shooter from any of three traps. In contrast, American traps offer one machine that oscillates and throws at a slower speed.  

“Sportsman’s Warehouse has been an awesome supporter of our youth shooting team,” states Kirk Horinek, Wasatch Wing and Clay Youth Shooting Team Head Coach. “We cannot thank them enough for their generosity and willingness to help us educate and preserve the youth shotgun shooting sports."

“I recently shot clays with the Wasatch Wing and Clay Youth Shooting Team, and I’ve seen first-hand how our support for this team is making a difference,” states Jared Tanner, Sportsman’s Warehouse Vice President of Marketing and eCommerce. “I’m impressed with the traction this program has achieved and proud to sponsor this great group of kids. We’re excited to continue our support for youth shooting and this Olympic Bunker Trap Project.”
