The LAR&R Junior Shooters Program is a 501c Non-Profit Organization. Contributions are gladly accepted and acknowledged. (See contribution page)
GOAL: The LAR&R Junior Shooters Program is designed to teach juniors from ages 10 to 21, firearms safety and marksmanship using .22 caliber target rifles. If the junior athlete desires he may progress into the world of competition and join our Rifle team. As we are all young at heart, if there is space available, we are happy to introduce older "juniors" to the sport of shooting and competition.
APPLICATION AND WAIVER: Fill out and print out the papers in the following link and bring with you to the first class.
EQUIPMENT: The Program will supply all equipment except for ammunition. Ammunition will be .22 caliber long rifle target grade standard velocity. Talk to the coaches before buying or bringing any ammunition. No ammunition will be allowed unless it is marked "Standard Velocity" or "Match" and approved by the coaches. NO HIGH VELOCITY ammunition is allowed. It is recommended that each participant buy a pair of safety glasses that fits them. They should fit so that when the person is looking down, the glasses stays in place. Prescription glasses that fit are acceptable. As a member of the [program you can participate in our ammo co-op and purchase a box of appropriate ammunition for $5 cash or check to LARR Junior Program. Per California law, any ammunition purchased at this range must be used at this range. It cannot be taken off the range grounds.
COST: Participation in the program requires annual membership in LAR&R. Membership applications can be obtained at the range. The membership fee is $75 per year. Each membership is for the family; member, spouse and juniors under 21. Persons coming into the Club by October 1 or later will be credited for the succeeding year.
Each junior and adult shooter must also be a member of the NRA: https://membership.nrahq.org/forms/signup.asp
