Why Shooting Sports?

What are the benefits of shooting sports and why should a young person engage in shooting sports?

  1. Shooting sports develop an ability to safely and properly handle firearms.  Firearm safety is constantly promoted and integrated into practice and events.

  2. Shooting sports teach young people to respect but not fear firearms.  Firearms are a tool that has many benefits if handled properly.  Firearms are part of the 2nd Amendment rights of American Citizens and useful hunting, self-defense, law enforcement and military professions.

  3. Shooting sports teach responsibility.  Firearms are fun, but they can also injure and kill if handles improperly (as can other tools, like cars).  Handling a firearm properly teaches responsibility.

  4. Shooting sports enhance mental focus.  Both clay target and pistol shooting require mental focus and concentration to compete well.

  5. Shooting sports incorporate courtesy and fair play during practice and competition events.  Most shooting sports competitors show courtesy and encouragement to their team mates, coaches, and referees.

  6. Shooting sports teach an appreciation for the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution and help young people understand and appreciate the wonderful privilege that the 2nd Amendment affords Americans.

  7.  Shooting sports are fun.

Shooting Team Objectives

Basic mission and purpose of the NOAH program, is to:

  2. Develop life skills and character through shooting sports competition.

  3. Develop competitive skeet and pistol shooting teams through regular training, practices, and competitions.

  4. Help young people gain an appreciation for the privilege the 2nd Amendment provides Americans.
