Youth Shooting League
Our Youth Shooting League is on the 3rd Thursday of each month & open to all kids from 8-19. Kids do not need to have shooting experience or a firearm to participate. We help kids of all skill levels with their shooting abilities. The sessions are mostly live fire on the outdoor range, with a few being held in the laser range where no ammunition is needed.
A parent or legal guardian must accompany anyone under 18. A parent or legal guardian must accompany 18 & 19 year old participants that want to use our pistols. Kids can bring their rifles and pistols that shoot 22LR or pistol caliber ammo.
We offer free use of our 22 and 9mm rifles and pistols during the league. Isurance requires the ammunition used in our firearms to be purchased from us. Therefore, kids cannot bring their ammunition to shoot with our firearms. However, they can bring ammunition to shoot in their firearms.
The outdoor sessions have a mix of paper and steel targets with distances from 3-25 yards (10+ yards for steel). Everyone must bring both eye and ear protection. When we have an indoor laser range session, no ammunition is needed, and kids do not need eye and ear protection.
The cost is $10/kid for non-members and free for children on our family membership package. If you have a youth group that would like to participate, let us know, and we can work out a group rate. We can accommodate up to 30 kids in the outdoor sessions. However, the indoor laser range sessions are limited to 16 participants. Kids and groups should signup in advance to reserve a spot.
