What We Are About:
- This club is designed to teach firearm safety, team work, and discipline while your child learns to compete in the disciplines of sporting clays, skeet, and trap. Members will complete the SCDNR Hunter Education course at the age of 12, taught by a team coach that is also a SCDNR qualified volunteer.
- The club will provide a practice facility, targets, and fun while learning firearm safety.
- Participants will need to provide their own eye and ear protection and 10 cases of shotgun shells for their firearm (average costs of shells is $60 per case as of 08/2014).
- Youth may use their own firearm if it is in good working order and is the right size and gauge for them. If they do not have access to a suitable gun, they may use the club guns when available.
- Costs to participate include but are not limited to: $10 annual 4-H membership dues which includes a tshirt, as well as entry fees for meets, which can run from $25 to $65 depending on the type of event attended. We attend an average of about 12 meets per year. We do attend some national events where fees may vary.
