In an increasingly urbanized world, young people are getting fewer chances to experience some of the shooting and outdoor activities we take for granted. Shooting gives young people the opportunity to participate in an exciting and challenging sport that may be enjoyed throughout their entire lifetime.
Shooting teaches responsibility and self-discipline while developing concentration skills and building self-esteem.
Because shooting does not place emphasis on strength, endurance, speed, or gender; boys and girls of various sizes, ages, and physical abilities can participate together on a relatively equal basis.
The NRA Day Program – Youth Sports Fest was developed to introduce young people to our American history and heritage, and to the rewarding, lifelong sport of shooting! This program acquaints young people with a variety of shooting and outdoor activities in a festival-like event! It is a recreational, non-competitive event designed to offer youths a hands-on introduction to shooting by Nationally Certified Instructors and is a welcome opportunity for youths who might not otherwise get an opportunity to experience America’s outdoor traditions.
