The beginner junior program is for youth between the ages of 7 and 17 who do not have much experience with firearms and require more coaching in the areas of safety and marksmanship. This program is conducted the first Saturday of each month from January through April, and October through December.

Our 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 and instruction.  Most of the instructors are NRA certified.

The starting time is 1:00pm and the instruction will continue until all participants have completed at least one complete target, more if time allows.

The targets provided are the A-17 military training target and are fired at 50 feet in the prone position.

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. As the child becomes more proficient, we recommend moving to the advanced junior program.
