FSA’s dedication to education and exposing young people to the shooting sports in a safe and fun way is expressed very well through our youth program. Our Youth Section Leader, Brian Ferneding, along with his staff of well qualified, certified, enthusiastic instructors and coaches, stand ready to help your son or daughter master the skills, attitude, and knowledge necessary to handle firearms in a safe and responsible manner.
From our own Hotshots Program to services for Boy Scout and American Heritage Girls Troops, to days-at-the-range for High School students, FSA’s youth program provides the best in quality firearms education and training for young people.
Our program is supported by FSA both financially and through huge numbers of volunteer hours given by our members, motivated only by a love of the shooting sports and a desire to share that love with others. But we also recognize the regular, and substantial, financial support given to our youth education programs by the Ohio Gun Collectors Association. Their contributions have allowed the FSA program to grow and prosper and to provide higher quality services to the youth of Southwestern Ohio than would otherwise be the case. We wish publicly to thank OGCA for their good work in our common cause.
