Five Stand is very similar to Sporting Clays in that a wide variety of targets are thrown. No two 5-stands are exactly alike. There are five "stands" or stations to shoot from. There are usually somewhere between 6 and 8 traps that throw targets.Participants shoot in turn at each of the 5 stands and various combinations of targets are thrown from the traps. Usually there is a menu card that will advise the shooter of the sequence of targets. Five Stand is a great way to get a Sporting Clays-like experience in a small amount of space, with very little walking.


Our 5-Stand

At Wallum Lake Rod & Gun Club we have 10 traps involved in our 5-Stand operation. Each trap has a unique presentation from running rabbits, to springing teal, and also includes incoming, outgoing, quartering-away, quartering-in and other angled targets.

Up to 5 shooters participate in a round and shoot at each of the 5 stations or stands. On the first pass at each stand, the shooter gets a 2-Shot Single target from one of the numbered presentations. Next, each shooter gets what is known as a Report Pair of targets. This is where after the first shot is fired, the second target is released. On the third and final pass on each stand, the shooter receives a True Pair of targets with both targets thrown simultaneously. Each shooter then moves to the next stand. That's a total of 5-targets at each of the 5 stands for 25 total clays.

The beauty of our 5-Stand is that not only are there different presentations at each station, but the order of them can be altered each day. For that matter, the location of the traps themselves can be changed from time to time so that presentations can vary and different levels of difficulty can be added into the game.

In 1985, Clay-Sport began creating 5-Stand Sporting specifically with the bird hunter in mind. This game was designed to be easy and inexpensive to fit onto any of the thousands of existing trap and skeet fields, and it was also designed to follow the same format and rotation as ATA trap to make it easy to follow for the shooters of these popular shooting disciplines.

The original game was played with no menu cards, which meant the shooters didn't know which throwers the clay targets were coming from, making the game more like hunting, but much more fun as well. All the targets were highly visible since they passed over a central area on the playing field, and the shooters relied on their instinctive shooting skills to break them. When the National Skeet Shooting Association (NSSA) and National Sporting Clays Association (NSCA) took over 5-Stand in America however, they adopted menu cards to make the game more regimented, like skeet.

Today, 5-Stand Sporting has been adopted by the Federation Internationale de Tir aux Armes Sportives de Chasse (FITASC), and with minor rule changes, they call their version Compak Sporting. Regardless, the game is now played in virtually every clay target shooting country in the world.

5-Stand Sporting is a registered trademark of Clay-Sport International Inc.

If you are looking for a new challenge, look no further. This shotgun sport will require all of your focus to shoot well. While at the club make sure you stop by the 5 Stand field and give it a try.


Members can check out guns from the main office to shoot 5-stand.
