A. “I don’t know.”
B. but, 2:20 min mark of the first video on the Policies & Procedures page of the *MD* State HS League website illustrates the “Ready Position” as shouldered or high position: http://mdclaytarget.com/rules/policies-procedures/
(That may change at collegiate level)
C. Also, this article from “PullUSA,” the official magazine of the USA HS CLT describes the “low” position as one of the differences between “Olympic” vs “American” skeet / trap: https://pullusamagazine.com/america-vs-the-world/
D. Knowing many collegiate teams shoot Olympic (“low,” delayed target) it would not surprise me if the USA HS CTL shoots high ready position BUT, once a high school skeet athlete reaches a certain level of proficiency that coaches allow athletes who choose to do so to shoot Olympic or low ready and particularly if that athlete is “on track” for one of the collegiate teams (where they’ll be required to)
The fact you’re even inquiring warrants a hearty “Congratulations!”
Don’t know how to send a PM with the new software.Fantastic!
Oh yes, bringing the comb of the stock up to the face / cheek (as opposed to “craning” one’s head down - and sideways - to the gun) is addressed in instructing on the stance and mount check (ideally prior to a first shot being fired and after confirmation of the shooters dominant eye). Goes for starting with gun high ready or low, btw.
This is very exciting; like any of the martial arts, youth involved in formal shooting programs invariably tend to build a foundation of character that simply takes them toward more fulfillment and further toward reaching full potential in life!
