Junior Rifle

Junior Rifle

The EESA Junior Rifle Program is open to members and to the general public.
This program is offered on Friday nights, beginning on the first Friday in January and ending at the end of April. During the 2022 Season, registrations will be accepted by email on Thursday evenings starting at 7:00 pm. Spots will be filled in the order emails are received. Relays (lines)start at 6:00 pm, 7:00 pm, 8:00 pm and 9:00 pm. Participants shoot their relay (line) twice, using two targets per relay.

The club provides several club owned .22 rim fire rifles for use, or individuals can bring their
own appropriate models (aperture sights are required). Participants are provided training in the safe handling and firing of firearms and can compete at various levels to obtain progressive badges. Past Junior members have competed with distinction in both the Ontario and Canada Games.

A $10 fee (per relay) includes both targets and ammunition for participants. Badge Program
memberships are $10 (per season) and include the Badge Program Competition and Awards
Night. Age limitations are 10 to 20 years of age. Certified coaches are present at each event to ensure both the safety and training of the participants.
