HUDSON – The Hudson Fish and Game Club Junior Rifle Team has openings available for juniors ages 11 and older for the upcoming year.

This is a competitive paper-target shooting program. New members will become part of a team that holds individual and team state and national titles.

A rifle clinic will be held Wednesday-Thursday, Sept. 10-11. The clinic is a great way to learn about the program and meet the coaches and team.

New members will be trained for smallbore .22 rifle and precision air rifle competition. Coaches teach three-position competitive rifle from the beginning using National Rifle Association programs and materials. The coaching staff includes NRA-
certified coaches and instructors.

No rifle experience is necessary. Once basic marksmanship skills are learned, new shooters will participate in indoor and outdoor match competition. Travel to other states is expected, but is within New England in most cases.

The team will supply the .22 rifle and basic equipment for the beginning marksman. Some parental involvement may be needed for match transportation or occasional help during practice.

The cost for the beginner is a monthly membership fee of $40.

Practices will be at the Hudson Fish and Game Club, 53 Pine Road, from 6-9 p.m. Wednesdays or Thursdays beginning in
mid-September.
