Junior Instruction And Safety
The focus of this effort is to promote a healthy respect for firearms and develop superior safety and marksmanship skills in the youth of our area. Junior members receive training and coaching from NRA-certified instructors and coaches and earn awards for demonstration of increasing shooting skills as they progress through the program. Competitions against other junior level shooters will be a part of each member’s program as his or her proficiency increases. Parents: would you rather your child find a gun, and try to figure out how to use it with their friend, or have a professional teach them the proper respect for firearms, and safety procedures?
Who Can Participate:
Any person from approximately age 10 to age 17 is eligible for junior program. Minors MUST have documented parental consent. Exceptions to the 10-year-old cutoff depend on the level of maturity of the individual child and his or her ability to comprehend and vigorously apply basic safety rules and procedures.
Exceptions are at the sole discretion of our instructors.. All participants or their guardians (as applicable) must sign a release of liability and provide basic medical emergency information and authorization for treatment in case of injury. Members must follow all club rules. Due to safety concerns, HORSEPLAY IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED! Members must also successfully complete the NRA Basic Rifle Shooting Course taught by our instructors before they will be allowed to shoot.
