YOUTH SHOOTING PROGRAMS

The Mohawk Rifle & Pistol Club encourages youth shooting and education.

Safety first. We teach and encourage safety.

We have programs for and have worked with the US Naval Sea Cadets and the Boy Scouts of America and have intrduced many kids to the shooting sport.

We are currently in need of member volunteers to assist with the Sea Cadet shooting program, please contact Durwood Carter if you can help.

We proudly participate in the Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program.

The Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program offers family fun and enjoyment that can last a lifetime. Qualification shooting is an informal, year-round recreational shooting activity that provides incentive awards for developing and improving marksmanship skills. Progression is self-paced and scores are challenging but attainable. Performance is measured against established par scores and any shooter who meets or exceeds those scores is entitled to the corresponding recognition awards for that rating.

Shooters acquire the large discipline patch at the onset of the program and as each rating is earned, they are entitled to all of the corresponding awards for the rating. Each rating level has a skill rocker, medal, and certificate award that recognizes and highlights the achievement.

The courses of fire in the qualification program are designed to take shooters from beginning skill levels (Pro-Marksman, Marksman) through intermediate levels (Marksman 1st Class, Sharpshooter, Expert) up to a nationally recognized skill level -- Distinguished Expert -- the pinnacle of the program. By the time a shooter completes the Distinguished Expert rating, he or she has attained a proficiency level paralleling that of a competitively classified Sharpshooter.
