Thoughts on youth programs

getting kids started cover image

Last year, one of my goals as the Club’s president was to begin creating a development program for young shooters.   Step one was to re-connect Ten X to the Niagara Rifle League and qualify some of our members as certified instructors.   Solid buildings require solid foundations, and Ten X successfully qualified a number of members as new pistol and rifle instructors.  A huge “thank you!” must be extended to member Matt G. for coordination and NRA Board member Budd Schroeder for teaching those classes.

Our range renovation projects are the second leg necessary for a solid youth development program.  We recently signed a $5,000 contract with a local architectural and engineering firm to come up with a plan to achieve new ventilation, heating, and containment options.  Stay tuned for updates.

Author and highpower coach Glen Zediker wrote a lengthy piece for the NRA’s Shooting Sports magazine and his blog.  It is worth reading.  Members who have their own ideas and inspirations should comment or pass on those ideas to the […]

Rifle Instructor Course

Members:

In September we held our first NRA certified pistol instructor course.  Under the instruction of Budd Schroeder, eleven Ten-X members successfully completed the course and are now NRA certified pistol instructors.  Budd has now agreed to hold a certified NRA Rifle Instructor course at Ten-X. 

The dates for the course will be Saturday January 16th and Saturday January 23rd.  The time will be 9am to 4pm, each day.  There is room for sixteen members  to participate.  Slots will be reserved on a first-come, first-reserved basis.  After sixteen slots are reserved, we will begin a waiting list.  If any of the first sixteen are unable to participate, we will then contact members on the waiting list, in the order they were placed on the list. 

We know that there is significant interest in this course, and we expect the slots to fill quickly.  We hope to hold additional rifle and pistol instructor courses as we progress through 2016 and as those […]
