2022 Hot Shots Youth Program

 Fairfield Sportsmen’s Association 2022 Hot Shots Youth Program

FSA has an exciting 2022 Youth Shooting Sports Program. From May 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

 New this year is 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. For more information please contact Andy Baldhoff abaldhoff@gmail.com.

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.  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 pair of gloves, 2 sweat shirts, and a pad 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 2022 we plan to have registration on April 9th.  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 9th.  First Steps will be mandatory 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 9th 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 Training for youth entering the program for the first time while returning shooters will report to the ranges for shooting practice.
