Welcome to the Ohio State Trapshooting Association (OSTA)
 
The OSTA dedicates itself to promote trapshooting as an enjoyable sport that has a
signature of good sportsmanship, conduct and safety.  Since 1887, we have served
the needs of Ohio trapshooters by promoting trapshooting as a wholesome sport
enjoyed by people from all walks of life.  Families, youths to seniors, men and
women, participate in trapshooting.  It’s an environment that promotes good
sportsmanship and conduct. The Board of Directors and Officers are committed
to serve the shooters of Ohio and their gun clubs.
