Twice each year the Monroe-Chester Sportsmen Club sponsors a "Youth Day" as a way to expose and educate our children and young adults to different shooting and archery activities in a safe and positive environment. Experienced instructors demonstrate each activity and work with each participant stressing safety in activities that are appropriate for the participant's age and abilities. Younger children might be taught how to shoot a size appropriate pellet gun while a older teenager will get to shoot on the trap range. Activities include 22 rifle, shotgun including trap, skeet and 5 stand sporting clays, air rifle, archery and black powder shooting
KIDS MUST BE 12 YEARS OLD TO SHOOT BUT
YOUNGER KIDS CAN SHOOT ARCHERY AND AIR
begin at 8:30 A.M.at Main Club House
Don't forget that another thing that
is stressed on "YOUTH DAY"
Not only for the kids but the instructors and parents to.
AM is mighty early on a Sunday Morning for kids and instructors
lots of both showed up.
After registering everyone, general information and safety rules were covered and everyone was sent to their first activity of the day.
|Some of the appeal of shooting black powder is that it represents the history of America from the time of the American Revolution and the Civil War. Several instructors demonstrate several different types of black powder guns from several historical periods.|
|Not only proper firearms but also proper uniforms are important in keeping the kids attention while a firearm and safe handling is demonstrated.|
|For those who are old enough and want to, they can take a turn shooting a black powder gun under the watchful eye and guidance of a qualified instructor|
