Additional Information

This is not a beginner program – participants should have experience with small bore (.22 LR Rimfire) rifles BUT they need not be familiar with competitive shooting techniques – instruction in those techniques is what is offered in this program.

This program is designed for those young shooters who wish to significantly improve their shooting skills, and ultimately seek to shoot competitively as part of the Ten X Competitive Shooting Team, under the direction of Coach Leif Johnson (see section on this program under the Youth Shooting Tab.)

Instructors in the program are experienced three and four position shooters, and will spend significant time teaching the shooters how to safely, properly, and successfully shoot competitively.
