Junior Shooter Program

The Junior Shooter Program is the first step in getting junior shooters involved with the SSPC.

The Junior Shooter Program is designed for Junior shooters and their Parent / Legal Guardian who are interested in pistol shooting and looking to join our shooting club.

The program runs in conjunction with any of the Introduction to Handguns Courses and consists of 60 minutes of handgun and range theory followed by a 90 minutes of live fire exercises.

During the course we will cover

  • Handgun Safety
  • Range Safety
  • Handgun Operation
  • Shooting Fundamentals
  • SSPC Club and joining information

Course Costs

$25.00  for each Junior if only they participate and parent/guardian just observe (through theory session and live range time),

$75.00 for each parent/guardian who wish to participate in the live range time and shoot as well.

All costs include range entry, ammunition, use of club guns and safety equipment as well as a hard copy of the Introduction to Handguns booklet for both attendees.

Once the Junior shooter and parent/guardian have successfully completed this course, you will be able to attend the range and shoot under supervision on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday nights and Saturday Mornings before making a decision to join our Club.

Each of our Range Officers and Live Fire Supervisors are fully licence shooters themselves along with holding a Working With Childrens Check (WWCC) credential.
