season typically starts in October and ends in March. It is and has been geared toward three (3P) and four position (4P) air
rifle and small bore rifle.
We start young shooters as early as nine (9) years of age; typically in our Sporter
air rifle program. Older Juniors progress to Precision air rifle and small bore.
We practice weekly and there
are a number of local and State matches. As the kids progress they can qualify for Regional and National matches including
the Junior Olympics held at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO.
