The American Legion Junior Shooting Sports Program is a gun
safety education and marksmanship program that encompasses the basic elements of safety, education, enjoyment and competition.
Shooters use the .177 caliber air rifle. Both males and females can participate, through Legion sponsorship; disabled youth
are encouraged to join, as competitive shooting is a sport that creates an equal playing field for all competitors. Contact
your local Legion post, Sons of The American Legion squadron or Auxiliary unit for information about affiliating as a club
Junior Shooting Sports is a three-part program that combines the Basic Marksmanship Course, Qualification Awards
and Air Rifle Competition into a well-rounded activity.
