FAIRFAX, Va. –-(Ammoland.com)- The National Rifle Association is now accepting applications for its annual competitive shooting camps for junior shooters.
These camps, run by the Coach Education Program, help young shooters aged 12-21 develop their marksmanship skills from casual to competitive through challenging and rewarding lessons.
“These camps have everything you need to take your game to the next level,” said NRA National Coach Trainer Daniel Subia.
“Each day will be filled with exercises designed to help you master your body positioning, breath, and trigger control to consistently shoot high scores. You’ll be tired at the end of each day, but you’ll also leave a better shooter than you were before.”
