The Junior Rifle Program offers young shooters between the ages of 10 to 20 a safe and supervised forum to shoot. The Junior Rifle Program meets from April to the end of November, Thursday nights from 6-8 pm on the indoor range. The Program also holds family friendly activities throughout the year.
All new shooters must first pass a Junior Safety Course taught by NRA certified instructors which are also certified as Merit Badge Counselors with the Boy Scouts of America and Trained in Youth Protection. For more information call Mike Heisler at (413) 626-4289.
