Womens Sport Shooting

Women’s Sport Shooting Overview

Our program provides the opportunity for women and teenage girls to experience proper training to confidently handle a shotgun or handgun.  We offer a safe, fun and relaxed environment for the beginner to the experienced.  Take time for yourself to gain necessary training to handle a firearm with confidence.

You do not need to be a club member to participate in the training. Open to members and non-members. Fees are paid the day of the event. Shotgun training is on a drop-in basis. Handgun requires pre-registration.

All Handgun and Shotgun events start in the Clubhouse with complimentary coffee and breakfast snacks. The shotgun and handgun events usually last 2-3 hours.

We shoot in all types of weather, so dress accordingly. In the summer please do not wear flip flops or open toe sandals for safety reasons.

Dianne Salata is available for personal shotgun or handgun training on the weekends. If you are a new shooter, it is encouraged you schedule a one on one training session with Dianne to become more comfortable with gun handling and shooting prior to the classroom group sessions.
