The Annie Oakley Shooters of Northern Illinois (The “Annies”) was established by a handful of women who had a vision to elevate the entire clay target shooting experience for women in our region. We are the first and only 501c3 non-profit specifically dedicated to advancing education and opportunities for women clay target shooters.
Our Mission is to enhance awareness and appreciation of women’s clay shooting sports in Northern Illinois by offering quality instruction, education, and opportunity for competition in the sport.
“When a man hits a target they call him a marksman. When I hit a target, they call it a trick. Never did like that much” Annie Oakley

S.H.O.T.S SPORTING CLAYS CLINICS
The Annies host monthly clay target shooting clinics that are a women- only, relaxed forum to sharpen shooting skills, socialize, get quality instruction and have an insanely fun time.
All experience levels are welcome; groups will be divided by experience level. Beginners are welcome and encouraged to break their first sporting clay with us. Clinics are non-competitive; only keep score if you want (most don’t).
Clinic fee is $40 (retail value $90) and includes gun rental, shells, targets, instruction, golf cart, eye and ear protection and post-shoot refreshments. Please register online 72 hours in advance and sign a liability waiver.
