What is Marksmanship?

Marksmanship focuses on teaching cadets the proper use and safe handling of firearms for recreational purposes only. The marksmanship program has been specifically designed for youth and is based on Olympic-style competition.

Zone Marksmanship Competition will take place March 16 2019 (during March Break). Any cadets interested in trying out for the Team please inform officers in charge. Juniors 12-14 years old are needed!
