(TEST) The advanced junior program is a continuation of the beginner program for youth between the ages of 5 and 18 who have a good understanding of safety and the principals of marksmanship. Participants in this program receive more intensive training: shooting at greater distances, the introduction of position shooting and the shooting of firearms other than a .22 rifle, such as target pistols and shotguns. This program is conducted the first Saturday of each month from January through April, and October through December.
Our one goal in this program is to teach the safe handling of firearms and the enjoyment of the shooting sports.
Each child must be accompanied by a parent or guardian, who must sign a release of liability. The release of liability form will remain on file for each calendar year.
This program is free of charge and LRPC will provide all targets, ammunition, .22 caliber rifles (or any other firearm used for the lesson), and instruction. Most of the instructors are NRA certified.
The starting time is 10:00am and the instruction will continue until all participants have completed at least one complete target, more if time allows.
Large groups (a party of 6 or more) are always welcome to attend. Please contact Bob Drake at 863-660-2236 a week in advance to reserve.
There is no limit on the number of times a child can attend this program.
