Youth Rifle League ShootersThe Youth Rifle League is 10 weeks of competitive shooting, designed to challenge the shooter while being safe and having fun. Each course of fire will challenge the young shooter’s ability to shoot safely and accurately at reactive steel plate targets. All shooting will be done under the direct supervision of a Range Safety Officer. This league is for all skill levels from novice to expert, and is not a timed event. The league starts with targets at 13 yards, and the distance progressively increases up to 40 yards for the final week. This league is for .22LR rifles only, with separate divisions for iron sights and scopes/optics. Shooters may use any single shot or semi-automatic rifle which is safe to shoot, but we do not allow rifles with tubular magazines which load from the muzzle.

This league is held on Thursday evenings. There are 3 consecutive leagues each year – fall, winter, and spring. We do not shoot leagues in the summer. Shooters will be assigned a 1 hour block, from 6-7pm, 7-8pm, or 8-9pm. The league meets outside of regular range operating hours, so the shooter must either be a Youth Member, or a dependent of an EPM member, to participate. All league shooters and a parent/guardian must attend the mandatory safety and scheduling meeting held the week before the league starts. Shooters will submit time slot requests at this meeting.

A parent or guardian must be on the property with the shooters at all times. All shooters must be at least 10 years of age before the completion of the league.

To shoot the league you will need the following equipment/ammunition:

  1. Eye and ear protection (required for shooters and spectators).
  2. 30 rounds of .22LR ammunition per week.
  3. Any safe .22LR rifle may be used, except those with tubular magazines which load from the muzzle.
  4. Case and chamber flag for the rifle.
  5. Recommend at least 1 extra magazine.
  6. Clothing and footwear suitable for shooting outdoors.
  • The cost of the 10 week league is $45.
  • BRSP has a limited selection of rifles available for use during the league if needed.
  • Shooters who miss a week may make-up their score by shooting twice on a later week, if there is time. The target distance will be the standard distance for that week, not the distance of the week that was missed.
  • At the completion of each league, there will be an awards presentation with dinner provided.
