Juniors December Schedule -- Range Open Saturdays from 9:00am to Noon

Activities will be:
  • Standing Training
  • NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program (MQP) skills practice


Q&A:

We've had a few athletes ask, "why are we practicing standing all December?"


The short answer is, "to get better."

The long answer is that during the Orion League, we tied or beat every competitor in the prone and kneeling positions.  We lost every match in the standing position.  To become better competitors, we need to improve our standing position scores.


Plus, being it's very cool to be good in standing.
