Shooting Sports Committee

Interested in SFBAC Shooting Sports? Are you an NRA trained Range Safety Officer or Instructor and want to help operate our Shooting ranges during Scouting events? Rangemasters and volunteers are always needed and welcome for all our Shooting Sports activities. Volunteers interested in helping at any of the above events and/or becoming a Shooting Sports Committee member should contact James Ewing to be added to the mailing list.

When helping at Shooting Sports activities, some positions require Shooting Sports certifications, including Archery, Rifle, Shotgun, Blackpowder and Pistol (only at Venturing activities). BB Gun range, tomohawk require basic safety knowledge and orientation. Support staff (kitchen, registration, etc.) does not require certification.
