When & Where
For Juniors, ages 8 to 18
Every Monday night, excluding the 3rd Monday of the month, 6:30 – 9:00 p.m.
Wrightsdale Baptist Church
310 Little Britain Road South
Peach Bottom, PA 17563
We work hand-in-hand with the Mason Dixon Youth Shooting Group, meeting Tuesday nights 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the American Legion Post 194 in Rising Sun, MD. It is the same program. If you cannot make it to Peach Bottom on Mondays, we would be happy to see you in Rising Sun on Tuesdays.
What to Bring
We provide all shooters with rifles, pellets, targets, safety glasses, shooting mats, and shooting stands.
We belong to the American Legion Youth Shooting Sports program and are sponsored by American Legion Post 535 in Oxford, PA. This can begin a journey to the Olympic Games, if a Junior wishes to pursue it.
After a safety briefing, we organize Juniors into relays of up to 10 shooters. Relays take roughly 15 minutes to complete so that Juniors don’t have a lot of wait time. Each shooter completes 3 to 4 targets each night.
Juniors ages 8 to 18 are encouraged to join us. However, we welcome younger than 8 if the Junior is mature enough to listen to our simple line commands. Parents are required to sign in themselves and their Junior(s) and must remain in the building. Chairs are arranged for easy viewing.
All Rifle Instructors and Range Safety Officers are NRA-certified and are on the line at all times to watch and help the shooters. No shooter will be left behind!
We do not formally record scores, but we encourage Juniors to keep track of their own improvement over time.
