COVID update – Nov 26

Due to the spike in COVID19 cases in our communities and around the country, the Park District has reverted to earlier guidelines and restrictions, similar to the Sportsman’s Park Reopening plan earlier this year. You can read all the recommended guidelines here.

You will also need to setup an account with the Naperville Park District before shooting, and make a reservation for the date that you wish to shoot. Both the account setup, if required, and the reservation can be down online from a computer, tablet, or mobile device.

You can make a Reservation here…. https://apm.activecommunities.com/napervilleparks/Activity_Search?txtActivitySearch=trap&applyFiltersDefaultValue=true&cat=Activities

Range Officers at Sportsman’s Park will verify your reservation and record the number of rounds for each shooter, and a Park District representative will follow up with the participants the following day to confirm payment details.
