JUNIOR RIFLE PROGRAM – 2019-2020
We are pleased to announce the next season for the Junior Rifle program at Nenameseck at the club facility located at 150 Bacon Road in Palmer, MA. The season will run for 16 consecutive Sundays beginning November 3rd, 2019 and completing on February 23rd with an awards ceremony. This will include 2 meets with October Mountain Shooters of Lenox, MA, (one meet at their site and one at Nenameseck).
The program will include but may not be limited to the following:
Instruction in the safe handling and operation of firearms, (this will be stressed throughout the season),
Familiarization with the operation of the rifles,
Proper handling, posture, positioning, sight picture, trigger control, breathing, etc.,
Weekly range time, 60 shots, (3 position – 20 prone, 20 kneeling and 20 standing).
The purpose of the program is to teach precision rifle shooting, coaching young shooters the proper safe handling of firearms while recognizing shooters as they improve their own personal scores. This program is not a competitive event but rather an environment where each shooter is encouraged to improve their personal skills through education and practice.
The program cost is $250. It is open to all 14-20 year olds as long as they are able to support a rifle in the standing position. No previous experience with firearms is required. All equipment is provided including rifles and all safety equipment, (eye and ear protection), shooting mats, mitts, jackets, ammunition etc.
Registration will be Sunday 03 November 2019 at 3:00 at the Club. Regular sessions/practices will begin the following week once the schedule is finalized.
Please refer to the Club’s website for updates and other information.
