The goal of the Golden Empire Council Shooting Sports Committee is to make shooting sports programs easily available to all scouts in the Golden Empire Council. We have a growing list of NRA Certified Instructor/Range Officers, and Archery Instructors that are willing to help your unit get involved with shooting sports. These Scouters are available to teach the shooting sports merit badges, teach the NRA training courses & provide shooting opportunities for your Scouts or Venturers. Instruction can be conducted as part of your unit meetings or at camp on the weekend. Equipment, guns, ammo & targets are provided by the Golden Empire Council. Let us know what you would like and we will make every effort to make it happen within the guidelines of our Standard Operating Procedures and BSA Policy.
We offer many shooting sports training and shooting opportunities for Scouts and Scout leaders. Some of these events are pre-scheduled and others can be scheduled at your convenience. For any course to be scheduled on the date of your preference reservations will need to be made 4 weeks in advance.

Our shooting programs are valuable rescources 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 carries over into many other aspects of life.
