But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
~ 1 Corinthians 15:57
The coaches of Life Way’s Shooting Team are certified by the National Rife Association (NRA) and keep current on all gun safety rules and regulations. The team is comprised of males and female members in grades 9th through 12th. Practice begins in the spring with competitions beginning in March and ending in late June. All team members will participate in gun safety and safe range operation training, such as:
- The Safety Fundamental of Shooting
- Keep your gun pointed in a safe direction
- Keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot
- Keep your gun unloaded until ready to use
- Proper rules for handing guns off firing range
- Proper rules for storing a gun
Competitive shooting is more about sharpening one’s mental qualities than physical size or strength. Our Shooting Team coach helps guide team members to concentrate completely on a task and relax under pressure – keys to success on the shooting team. Shooting is a lifetime sport that increases mental discipline and personal responsibility.
Our shooters are expected to demonstrate good sportsmanship at all times. Our calling as Christians during competition is to act and speak in such a way as to give God glory. Great sportsmanship gives glory to God.
