Hot Shots

FSA has an exciting 2024 Youth Shooting Sports Program. From April to October youth have the opportunity to participate in either FSA’s archery, 4-position Smallbore Rifle program or shotgun (Skeet or Trap) program.  FSA’s Youth Shooting Sports Program is open to all youth ages 8 to 18 (male or female) and does not require club membership, so invite your friends. We’ll meet at FSA the second Saturday each month from 9:00 to 12:00 for instruction and practice.  For youth desiring to become more serious, Hot Shots is an entry point for the FSA Air Rifle Team and SCTP Lead Slingers Shotgun teams.  Hot Shots is an opportunity for youth who want to shoot for pleasure or work toward shooting competitively. In the Hot Shots Program they will progress through the NRA Winchester Marksmanship Program earning awards as they go.

Disciplines:
Archery-
Our archery program available for youth up to 18 years old. The youth should have the physical strength to pull back a 25 pound bow and the mental and emotional maturity to participate in a coached sport. FSA will provide bows, arrows, and eye protection.

4-Position Smallbore Rifle-
Youth 8 to 18 years of age will receive instruction on shooting from 4 positions (prone, sitting, kneeling, and standing) a .22 caliber target rifle utilizing a sling. They will start shooting off sand bags in the prone position. As competency increases, the marksmen move to higher (more difficult) positions.  We’ll follow the NRA 4-position small bore program guidelines.  FSA will provide rifles, ammo, targets, ear protection, and eye protection.  The youth will need to bring to each practice: a pad, yoga mat, or piece of carpet to lie on.

Shotgun-
The shotgun program is open to youth up to 18 years of age.  The youth should be approximately 100 lbs. and have the physical strength to handle a shotgun and the mental and emotional maturity to participate in a team sport. Youth will be introduced to Trap or Skeet disciplines and will receive instruction to develop shotgun shooting skills. FSA will provide shotguns, ammo, ear and eye protection, and targets.

Registration:
For 2024 we plan to have registration on April 13th. At this time we’re not limiting the number of youth
participants.  We will conduct NRA First Steps Rifle and Shotgun Certification training on April 13 th.  First Steps will be mandatory for all youth joining Hot Shots for the first time and recommended for parents.

Cost:
The cost to participate is $30 per shooting youth for the summer (cash or check).  The fee offsets a small portion of FSA’s cost of targets, ear and eye protection, ammunition, NRA First Steps packet, and awards.

Next Steps:
We will have a meeting on April 13th at 8:30 A.M. in the FSA Education Building to review programs,
equipment needs, answer questions, and register youth which will be followed by First Steps Safety Training.
