Our shooting programs are valuable resources for helping young people develop self-confidence, personal discipline, responsibility, teamwork, self-esteem, and sportsmanship. The discipline and self-control required for responsible firearms use carry over into many other aspects of life.

All participant must have training before participating on the rifle, shotgun, pistol for adults and Venturer's, and archery ranges. GEC requires each person to attend a 30 minute briefing for each of these disciplines.


If your scout has their archery, rifle, shotgun merit badges then they don’t need to attend these classes, just bring their blue cards with them on Friday Aug. 17th and we will sign off a card for them at registration.


If you already have your white cards completed for each of the disciplines, bring it with you for the instructors to see at their ranges.  


Trainings available: 

You only need to come to ONE session of the four sessions offered. If you already have disciplines signed off on your white card (bring it with you) you will need to attend the entire class, as we can’t tell you what time a specific discipline will be taught during the classes (except the pistol will be taught last, so those who can’t take the class will be able to leave) The review will be good for you.


All classes will be offered at the Galt Police Station located at 455 Industrial Dr., Galt CA. 95632 on July 21 OR July 28
