FCGC Juniors Latest News


The Forest City Juniors will kick off the 2018 Season on Sunday, January 14 at 2pm.  Children and grandchildren of members are welcome to join the team from grades 5-12 (4th if they have some moderate shooting experience).  Meet at 2pm in pavilion for first practice and informational meeting.  Bring them out and see if they like it, team commitments will not be required until end of February.

The Forest City Juniors is a competitive shooting team that competes with other youth shooters in the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP).  In our 4th year in 2017, the team finished 3rd in the Nation out of 200+ teams and over 2,400 shooters at the SCTP National Championships in Columbus, Ohio in July.  Colin Davis finished 2nd overall in the Nation and Grace Kieffer finished as the 3rd Lady in the Nation.  It was quite a year, and we are aiming even higher in 2018 as we look to climb to the top of the national podium.

The great thing about this program is that it serves as both an introduction to the shooting sports for many and the platform for State, Regional and National recognition for others.  All skill levels welcome.  Young shooters are taught gun safety and handling and introduced to shooting basics and allowed to grow at their own pace to go as far as they can go.  Shooting is 5 divisions from Rookie (5th and below) to Intermediate (2 middle school divisions) to Junior and Senior Varsity for high schoolers.  We may even have some of our graduates come back and shoot in the Collegiate division.

Practices are every other Sunday from 2-4pm until we get closer to competitions.  4-6pm after time changes.  We have a great group of volunteer coaches who are all experienced shooters and instructors who graciously give up their own time to help the kids out of love for the sport and fulfillment of one of the primary missions of our great club.

Come join us and see if your child or grandchild will want to join this fine tradition.

Forest City Gun Club Junior Shooting Team

 

Forest City Gun Club is proud to support the junior members of the club.  The Forest City Juniors program began in 2014, and shot in their first SCTP tournament only a few months later.

For 2016, after one full year and one partial year of organization, we have over 30 junior shooters from 5th grade to seniors.  The hard work and dedication of the coaches and the young shooters has already paid off.  Joseph Reyes is a two-time defending skeet junior varsity champion from the SCTP nationals, where the Forest City Juniors also placed 4th in skeet and 2nd in sporting clays.
