The Junior’s Program offers instructions in gun safety and competitive shooting with an emphasis in NRA 4-postion small-bore rifle shooting. The program is open to all kids 11-18 years old. They need not be associated in any way with a club member or any organization.
Program Instructors provide a comprehensive safety orientation and instruction on the use of the club’s 22 caliber single shot rifles. The program runs from 7 PM to 9:30 PM every Friday night. New shooters are welcome throughout the year.
The NRA small-bore 4 position’ and American Rifleman Qualification Programs are supported as is the Boy Scouts of America Rifle Badge Program. We have a BSA Counselor/Instructor in house. Girl Scouts, JROTC, Sea Cadets, 4H and school teams are also welcome. Large groups (more than 4) must contact me first so adequate range coverage can be ensured.
Range officers are always present as are experienced shooters and instructors. Total program cost is $20 per year and includes the use of club rifles (Marlin 2000 International Standard Rifle), ammunition (22LR), spotting scopes, slings, gloves and targets (A-17 & A-36). The course of fire is indoors at 50 ft. We provided the required eye and ear protection.
I look forward to seeing you on Friday. Please feel free to contact me with questions about the program.
