Jr Rifle

NOSC Jr. Rifle program will start on Sunday October 11 2015. This is a NRA program and is open to open to shooters 10 to 18. Three sessions are available; 10 AM and 12:30 PM (noonish). Scores from other clubs will be accepted, so be sure to retain a copy.

The NOSC Junior Rifle program is designed to introduce young people to the sport of rifle shooting, and to provide them with a safe place to practice that sport. We want our young shooters to acquire the physical and mental skill and discipline needed to accurately shoot a .22 caliber rifle. We also want them to know how to handle all types of firearms safely and responsibly. There is no safety in ignorance. All of our instructors are NRA certified and we’re affiliated with the Civilian Marksmanship Program. NOSC is a CMP Affiliated Club.

Cost: The NOSC Junior Rifle program is offered free of charge. We provide rifles, ammunition, shooting mats, targets. (Eye and ear protection is required during live fire on the range!) You are encouraged to bring your own eye and ear protection, and may also bring any other equipment you might have. Rifles must be bolt-action, single fire .22 caliber – no semi-autos – preferably with aperture (peep) sights. So if you want to bring your own target rifle, that’s fine with us!

Who: Our Junior Rifle program is open to all US citizens. You do not need to be a member of North Olmsted Sportsman’s Club to participate. Any young person old enough – and mature enough – to follow the rules and obey instructions, and big enough to safely handle a .22 rifle, is welcome. Our current shooters range in age from 10 to 18. Written parental permission is required – we’ll provide the forms – and parents need to be present at the shoots. Also, it doesn’t matter if your child has ever fired – or even handled – a firearm before. We begin with a thorough introduction to safe firearm handling, and allow each member to develop their skills at their own pace.

Schedule: We maintain a electronic calendar of events. Times are 10:00 AM; 12:30 PM; 3:00 PM See you there!

Scores: Your scores will be available online soon.
