Disciplines Shot at Eden

Compak Sporting

Compak is the fastest-growing sporting discipline, mainly because it is fast and compact, targets must pass within 40m of the shooter.

English Sporting

English Sporting also known as English Doubles, is just that, all targets are shot in pairs, either on report (one after the other) or in simultaneous pairs (thrown together at the same time).

FITASC Sporting

FITASC is the most difficult disciple in clay target shooting, as literally anything goes, the range setter can make the targets as difficult and as far away as he chooses, it only has to be possible to hit the target.
