Another season has come and gone for the spring youth program. The Chuluota Sportsmen's Club hosted another great series of sessions focused on introducing local youngsters to safe shooting sports. This was a six week program, with children ages from 10 to 16. The youngsters learned firearm safety and shooting with the club's 22 rifles. The instructors were quite impressed with the talent that the kids demonstrated during the six weeks. Some were had some limited experience, but for most it was their first exposure to shooting. A number of different targets used each week provided a variety of opportunities to learn and later compete. Balloons, regular paper targets, large playing cards were all used in shooting games. For a finale. we had a mock silhouette competition.
Several children have shown interest in competing with other youth programs throughout the area.
In the fall we will begin another season, again starting with a safety program, this time with 20g shotguns. This time the program will be centered on shooting clay birds and ending with shooting trap.
Pictures are provided to show the various children and targets. We had a great group. The instructors are outstanding. See Media Gallery on Home page for photos.
