Air Force JROTC Marksmanship Team

Basic Marksmanship Target
Basic Marksmanship Target

Marksmanship is an Olympic sport that stresses control, discipline, concentration and extreme precision. One of the unique benefits of target shooting is that it does a great job of teaching life skills like discipline, self-control and emotional control. Rifle marksmanship also teaches and enhances important human performance skills such as concentration, goal setting and teamwork. These are skills that can benefit students’ academic performances as well.

In the Thompson High School AF JROTC Marksmanship Program cadets will learn gun safety & basic marksmanship in range firing activities while competing against other cadets, and in the future other schools, while firing in prone, standing, kneeling positions.

During this after school activity the team will utilize .177 caliber air rifles in a strictly controlled, safe environment.
