The goal of this program is to provide Juniors with a safe and controlled environment to learn firearm safety and marksmanship. The Juniors program meets on the first Saturday of every month to provide Juniors with the proper knowledge and skills to use rifles and shotguns safely. The classroom starts at 0830 and runs for approximately two and a half hours and then time at the range. Please meet at the training building.
Your child is eleven to twenty years old (younger students may be accepted depending on physical abilities and maturity). Have taken the NRA FIRST Steps for Rifle or equivalent, with the approval of the lead instructor. To register for the next FIRST Steps Class go to the Juniors Page. Our upcoming classes are listed at the bottom of the page.
We provide safety equipment, firearms, ammunition, certified instructors, and targets. All you need to supply is a Junior willing to have fun.
Time / Cost
Class length is generally four hours.
There is no charge for this activity.
Parents/guardians are required to stay with their child during the entire time they are in class. Sorry, but No “Drop-Offs” are allowed.
The BRPC Juniors Registration form must be completed by the accompanying parent or legal guardian and presented at the range before active participation. This form is also available at the range to be filled out when you arrive early.
NOTE: The Club and training facility is rustic and does not have running water. Our restrooms are porta-potties with hand-sanitizing dispensers. The classroom is climate controlled however due to the extreme temperature variations during the year we recommend dressing for the season and keeping in mind that the range and classroom are often chilly in the morning and evening during the non-sweltering months.
There are no vending or food/drink services on the club property or nearby. Our daylong courses require that students bring all food, drinks, and snacks they will desire for the length of the course. Most classes utilize a working lunch and students will not have time to leave the property for lunch.
