The BC Aboriginal Rifle Shooting Development Camp is coming to Coombs March 28 and 29, giving Aboriginal youth age 10-17 a chance to try the sport of rifle shooting.
The event, which is put on by the Aboriginal Sport, Recreation and Physical Activity Partners Council (ASRPAP), will give youth a chance to learn and experience rifle shooting in a safe and controlled environment while working with top B.C. instructors.
A sport relying on accuracy and precision, rifle shooting is a featured sport in the North American Indigenous Games, Canada Winter Games and the Olympic Games.
The event is put on with the help of partnerships with the B.C. Target Sports Association, Parksville-Qualicum Fish & Game Association and Mid-Island Metis Nation.
There’s no experience or equipment required. Thanks to the support of the partners, the participation fee is only $20, with lunches included.
The deadline for registration is next Monday, March 23 and you can contact Chantel Spicer at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 250-418-5390 for more information.
