Shooting Sports in Scouts BSA

A presentation to describe shooting sport opportunities in Scouts BSA Program

Baden-Powell had strong belief that firearm safety should be part of Scouting Program. In the early days most of the scouts grew up with firearms in their everyday use on farms and for hunting for food.

The purpose of BSA shooting sports is to teach firearm safety while introducing youth to a variety of shooting sports programs. The BSA’s shooting sports programs are developed and implemented through age-appropriate training and experiences. 

This article contains a power point presentation that describes the history of Shooting Sports in the Scouting program, the aimes for the Shooting Sports being in the Scouting program as well as the various Shooting Sport activities in which Scuts able to partake. 

NOTE: This presentation was created to fulfill one of my Wood Badge ticket items.  I hope it is useful to you.
