About our Program
We are a competitive program that is geared to teach youth rifle marksmanship and have been doing so since 1946. We actively compete in matches in Western Washington almost year round and we do maintain a practice schedule through most of the year.
The club provides all the gear necessary, including the rifle, for all new students. Generally, if we have gear that fits, the student can use it as long as it fits or is necessary. We use a lot of specialized gear as a student progresses in our sport, so we try to minimize costs until the family decides this is a sport that they want to support.
We are a competitive program, so we gear our practices to get the students match ready and expect our students to compete. Matches generally run from September to June, with the majority of our matches from February to May.
Our coaches are volunteers, and receive no compensation for their time coaching. Most of the junior rifle clubs in the State of Washington use volunteer coaches.
Our program has had a lot of success over the years. We are the home to a number of State and National Champions over the course of the program. In the past two years, we have had students qualify to attend the National Junior Olympic Championships held at the Olympic Training Center located in Colorado Springs, CO. 2012 and 2013 were a big year for our program. Our top team won the NRA Indoor Smallbore 4 Position National Team Championship in 2012 and 2013, finished 2nd overall in the NRA Indoor 3 Position Air Rifle Championship and 3rd overall in the NRA Open Smallbore National Championship. The team finished 3rd overall in the American Legion National Championships. Our top team also won the State Qualifier for the 2012 CMP 3 Position National Championships. This same team also set two national records.
If you are interested in the program, please email me for further information. In general, we like to meet the student and parents during one of our practice sessions.
