Junior High Power Team new shooter intro, Ben Avery 9-Nov
« on: November 03, 2019, 01:47:12 pm »

Are you or do you have or know a teenager with some shooting experience who wants to join one of the strongest rifle teams in the US?

The sport of CMP/NRA-style High Power Rifle using the "service rifle" consists of shooting at 200, 300 and 600 yards from Standing, Sitting and Prone Positions, both slow fire and rapid fire. 98% of shooters use the AR-15, its simply the best target rifle ever invented for this sport! Adults and Juniors shoot matches at all three Phoenix area ranges (Avery, PRGC and Rio Salado) as well as Tucson. The season culminates each year with the teams heading Camp Perry Ohio for the National Trophy Matches (read the write up )

The Arizona State Junior High Power Rifle Team, "The Scorpions" , will hold a new shooter orientation at Ben Avery, at Noon on Sat 9-Nov-19 on the 200 yard line of the High Power Range.

This is NOT a beginner class! This is for teenagers who already shoot and want to get involved with a great competition team! Experience on a .22 Rifle league would be great, skill with the AR-15 style rifle would be great, even non-NRA competition experience such as Practical or Clay target will give you a good background!

Interested attendees MUST pre-register, contact [email protected] for info!

You must contact the team coach [email protected] by this wednesday so he knows what to bring! All equipment will be provided.

In the morning before this junior orientation both the adult and junior team members will be practice on the 600 yard line if any of you show up early you can watch and learn.

The adult High Power team is also recruiting new shooters! Contact me, or come out to any scheduled high power shoot, if you are interested.


Again: for the junior introduction you must contact the team coach [email protected] by this wednesday!

    Good article, Bill.  This is the first time I've seen zomething like this. 

    To all, the AZ Jr high power team is a well respected national team.  I have watched themand been afoated woth the Jr. Smallbore groups that feed onto the high power team.  Great bumch of kids.  Smallbore teaches them safety, tgen the basics of position shooting, while progressing thru the NRA qualification courses earning sharpshooter, marksman, pro-marksman, and expert badges.

    If we don't teach the next generation to shoot, hunt, and fish they will be indoctronated to denegrate, deride, and eliminate such.
