Junior Shooting Programs
MRRA Supports Junior Shooter Development But Does Not Endorse Any Particular Club.
Minnesota State Junior Service Rifle Team
In general there are two groups of shooters. The first group is the "Local Club" shooter.
They are the type that enjoys going out to the local club from time to time and recreational shoot with friends and family.
The second group, are the ones that want more and are willing to put in the time and financial requirements to be the best they can be. That's the few we are looking for!
Shooting can be a year around sport and the main part of service rifle calendar starts in April and ends in the last part of September. To be a member of the State team you must be ready to make that type of commitment or else the local club style of shooting may be best for you.
The State has a good supply of equipment to get you started and one of the top coaches in the country that has helped put whistler boy teams in first place at Camp Perry and many more individuals on the stage.
We are looking for juniors who will be 15-18 years of age in 2009 and are highly motivated to win. You must be able to attend regular practices and matches along with be able to travel to Camp Perry for the first week of August.
If you think you can be one of the top junior shooters in the State, contact the state Junior Director for more information.
