The NRA Junior Rifle Marksmanship Program is a rimfire rifle training program for youths and is being offered to Middle and High School students in the Houghton Lake Community Schools .  Students use the HLSC facilities to learn and develop rifle shooting skills, learn techniques in firing from standing, sitting and prone positions, learn safe handling of a firearm and learn how to maintain focus and achieve their goals in marksmanship shooting.  The NRA’s program places an important emphasis on safety, education and sportsmanship as students come together and perform as a team.  The program has been active at the HLSC since 2007 with many students achieving Distinguished Expert Certifications.  As the sponsor for this program the HLSC provides all of the range equipment, ammunition, targets, firearms, eye & ear protection and instruction at no cost to students or parents.    
The Program is available to all students in the Houghton Lake Community Schools.  Sign-up sheets will be available in the offices at the Middle  School and High School, along with parental permission slips and Hold Harmless forms requiring the parent’s (or their guardian’s) signature.  These required forms are to be turned in to the HLSC instructor on the first day of attendance in order to participate in the program.  STUDENTS MAY ENROLL IN THE PROGRAM AT ANY TIME DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR.  The HLSC makes arrangements with the Rosco bus to pickup students from the schools and bring them to the clubhouse;  students are responsible to arrange for transportation home after each weekly session.
