The Youth Rifle Program is open to all youngsters ages 12 to 18. The program uses the NRA Smallbore Marksmanship Qualification Program. It is a self-paced program that allows participants to develop the necessary skills and knowledge to progress from Pro-Marksman to Distinguished Expert in a safe and well supervised environment.
The club provides the rifles, ammunition, targets, eye and ear protection, shooting jackets, and gloves. The firearms are bolt action single-shot .22 caliber rifles with peep sights. If a youngster has his/her own equipment, they are welcome to bring it. The cost is only $2.00 per shooter per week.
The program meets every Wednesday, except the 2nd Wednesday of the month, from October to June. Instruction starts at 7:00 p.m. and normally finishes around 8:30 p.m.
parents may visit the range during instruction hours and speak to an instructor.
UPDATE: Youth rifle will wrap up the session sometime in May and won't resume until
sometime in late September/early October 2017. Interested parents can contact Dan
Gilmore for more information or simply show up at 6:45 to discuss enrollment. Classes
take place indoors at the Indoor Pistol Range.
