Level 1 Pistol Coaches Class @ Village of Los Lunas Transportation Center
Mar 28 @ 8:00 am – Mar 29 @ 5:00 pm

The Responsible Hunter Program is hosting a Scholastic Pistol Program / National Rifle Association / USA Shooting Level 1 Pistol Coaches Class in Los Lunas, NM, March 28 and 29. The class is open to all, but especially those wishing to improve their pistol instructor skill or start a SPP team.

Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF) is the national governing body for youth speed shooting on steel targets, offering kids from 12 years old through college the opportunity to safely participate in our exciting team-based Scholastic Pistol Program (SPP) — a sport that can truly be enjoyed for lifetime.

Like all the sports SSSF offers, SPP is designed to instill in young people a set of personal values or character traits for fair play, compassionate understanding, individual responsibility, sportsmanship, self-discipline, and personal commitment. As the sport itself, these qualities will stay with them throughout their lifetimes, helping each young athlete reach his or her full potential.
• Our athletes compete in a centerfire and/or a rimfire division.
• Targets are steel circle or rectangular plates.
• All courses of fire are timed events.
