Summary of Changes: International Skeet & Bunker Trap

SHOTGUN RULES

Skeet Target Throwing Distance. The distance Skeet targets must travel is increased by 2.00 m from 66.00 m +/1.00 m to 68.00 m +/- 1.00 m.

Skeet Course of Fire. Possible changes in the order that the Skeet stations are fired are still under consideration and will be decided as soon as possible.



Double Trap. The course of fire will use random A, B and C schemes in each round instead of the present fixed schemes. The double schemes are thrown randomly, but during each round of 25 pairs, each athlete will receive the same number of pairs from each scheme at each station. The delayed release is eliminated.

Eye Protection. Competitors and officials on the field of play in Skeet events are required to wear eye protection.

Coaching. Non-verbal coaching is permitted during Shotgun competitions only.

Plated Shot. Because of environmental concerns, plated pellets will be prohibited as of 1 January 2014.

Side Blinders. As an added safety protection, side blinders for Shotgun only may be up to 60mm in depth.
