Smallbore Competitive Shooting

NYSPHSAA Section VI’s decision to eliminate Smallbore / .22LR rifle competition has resulted in no local opportunity for high school students to shoot Smallbore rifle competitively. Ten X Shooting Club is dedicated to promoting the shooting sports, and with a recently established Youth Shooting program, we are exploring ways to keep alive Smallbore rifle competition in Western New York. We think this is especially important for those students considering attending colleges with rifle teams and/or applying for shooting scholarships. Our goal is to compete both regionally and nationally in matches against other similar programs.

Our club has multiple National Rifle Association certified rifle instructors as well as NRA and 4H certified coaches. Also, our President, Peter Vasilion, formerly coached the Clarence High School Rifle Team and is committed to promoting this opportunity for your students.  We have invested thousands of dollars in architectural and engineering studies to modernize our indoor range HVAC system in the coming year.  We were awarded multi-thousand dollar NRA Foundation grants in each of the past two years for the express purpose of starting a Smallbore program.

We are inviting high school rifle team shooters to participate in our youth rifle program.  We will be having an informational meeting on Wednesday, March 28th @ 6pm at our indoor range, which is located at 853 Ransom Road, between Walden & Broadway in Lancaster. Please bring at least one parent or guardian to the meeting.

We are happy to announce the Mr. Leif Johnson, the Rifle Team Coach at Lancaster High School has agreed to be the primary coach of the program. Other members of Ten X will assist, including several who have shot competitively for many years and/or are NRA certified instructors or coaches.

The purpose of this meeting will be to introduce you and your parents/guardians to the club and to Coach Johnson. While we have some ideas as to what the team can do, we want the input of those “founding team members” so that we offer shooters the kind of program that fits their needs and goals, with the ultimate result being that we form a highly competitive team that can compete locally, regionally, and even nationally.

Hope to see you on the 28th.

Please e-mail the information requested below to matt@olm1.com to RSVP for the 28th.
