Marshfield Youth Rifle Program
Our Junior Rifle is teaching gun safety and promoting the shooting sports to the next generation.
Regardless of age or experience, participation in any of our Rifle programs requires passing a mandatory safety training class, including a written test.
We have a Monthly Junior Rifle program on the 1st Monday night that teaches basic safety and marksmanship to Club members kids and grandchildren, 10 to 18 years old. A 45 minute basic Rifle safety course is the requirement to shoot with the Junior Rifle team.
The South Coastal Youth Rifle Team meets on the 3rd and 4th Monday nights and teaches competitive rifle shooting to youth 12 to 21 years old. A mandatory 4 hour safety training event is required to shoot with South Coastal Youth Rifle. The team has both young men and ladies from Quincy to Plymouth, and participates in the NRA/Winchester Rim-fire Marksmanship qualification. We have had a 16 and 15 year old in the 'NRA Open 3P Small-bore Rifle Indoor Sectional Championship' in March, and a competitor in the 'U.S. Army Marksman's Unit Eastern 3P Small-bore and Air rifle Championship' last October. Several youth are members of the of the Olympic Shooting organization USA Shooting and are rated NRA Competitors.
The team has been shooting since 2010 and is growing and always looking for new members- you do not need to be involved with or related to a club member, just a desire to try to succeeded in this challenging sport.
Both youth programs are at no cost- there is no rifle or any gear required, the parents do not have to be gun owners, all material and training is supplied.
These programs all have State certified Firearms instructors and NRA/USA Shooting Rifle Coaches running the events and are always present. The only Firearm types in use are bolt action 22 caliber rifles. Safety is our first priority, and fun and accomplishment are next.
