Junior Rifle


The Nenameseck Junior Rifle Program for the 2023-2024 season, is almost here! The Club has decided to keep the price of the program down again to just $95 to make it as affordable as possible to as many as possible.

The program will continue to offer the same instruction and range time, awards and end-of-season banquet as in the past. Sweatshirts with the Club and Jr Rifle logos will be available for a small fee. We sincerely hope that this will make the program better fit into everyone’s budgets. With the cost of everything  rising we are doing our part to keep this program affordable for all potential junior shooters that want to participate.

The season will run for 16 consecutive Sundays beginning with registration on 05 November 2023, with breaks only for Christmas, New Year’s and the Super Bowl.  The new coaching lineup has been busy reviewing how to improve the program and we think you will find it very interesting, educational and fun.

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/sitting and 20 standing).

It is open to all 12-20 year olds, male and female, as long as they are able to safely support a rifle in the standing position. No previous experience with firearms is required.  All equipment will be provided, (rifles, ammunition, targets, shooting jackets, spotting scopes, shooting mats, mitts), including safety equipment, (eye and ear protection).

Please RSVP ASAP or, for more information please contact one of the coaches:
