Shooting Education

The Shooting Education program uses shooting as a vehicle to teach youth ages 9 to 19 life skills such as responsibility, self discipline, and teamwork. The following disciplines are used to teach these life skills – archery, muzzleloading, pistol, rifle, and shotgun. Through these disciplines, youth also learn firearm safety and marksmanship.
