Youth/Family Introduction to Skeet Shooting Course
All participants are required to complete our new shooter registration and safety course online before coming out to shoot.
The Youth Class is held on the second Wednesday of the month from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm at the Loch Raven Skeet and Trap Center. Parents are welcome to sign up and take the course with their children.
At Loch Raven Skeet and Trap Center, one of our greatest pleasures is to introduce newcomers to the sport of skeet shooting. But many people who are new to the sport, or shooting in general, aren’t comfortable just throwing themselves into it. That’s why we have developed a skeet shooting course for adults (18 and over) as well as a Youth Camp tailored for children (10 to 17) and their parents.
A number of our center members, with many years of skeet shooting experience, generously volunteer their time to serve as instructors and mentors for the courses. Center members Mark Polek, Paul Shapanus, Dana Hood, Alan Kefauver, Tom Herndon, Ron Davis, Jack Bart, Roy Bart
Each course provides instruction on gun safety, shooting etiquette, and proper technique for skeet shooting. And while the course is intended as an introduction to skeet shooting, the program will be tailored to the level of students attending the session. All sessions are held when the facility is closed to regular shooting activities so students attending the courses can learn in a controlled, safe, and welcoming environment. And each course is separate so individuals can sign up for as many sessions they feel are needed.
The price per session is $40.00 and includes instruction, targets, ammunition, and use of a club shotgun. Exact change or check is required for payment as we cannot process credit cards for this program.
So if you’re new to shotgunning, or the sport of skeet shooting, and feel you’d benefit from instruction, and some hands-on experience, use the electronic form below to sign up for one of our popular courses! The deadline for course registration is on the first Wednesday of the month.
