Yolo Sportsmen’s Association sponsors a junior rifle team for young athletes between 12 and 18 years of age. The team meets twice monthly on Saturday mornings, starting in September and ending in May. The team shoots NRA sponsored .22 caliber bolt action single shot rifles. All are equipped with adjustable rear aperture sights and globe front sights. All rifles are equipped with front sling swivel and a single point sling for prone and kneeling position shooting. Limited numbers of Anschutz competition rifles are available. YSA and NRA provide the ammunition.
During our twice-monthly shoots, athletes shoot a 60 round, 3 position course of fire. The team shoots follow the Winchester/NRA 3 position smallbore rifle program.
Classroom training in our clubhouse includes firearm safety and marksmanship skills, and SCATT electronic training methods. Other covered skills include sportsmanship, teamwork, attitude, target shooting culture, and respect for country. Team oriented fun shoots that include biathlon, Reindeer shoots, zombie target shoots, lifesaver shoots, and splat targets are included in some of the weekly shoots.
The final shoot of the year includes a potluck luncheon and a chance to shoot higher powered, larger caliber firearms, and black powder muzzle loading rifles.
Intrasquad and NRA/CMP approved Intrasquad competitions using club supplied equipment are available to interested athletes.
