Lee Sportsmen's Association

Shooting is my Olympic sport

Air pistol is a great way to enter the shooting sports. There is no recoil or noise, which allows us to train for sight alignment and trigger control, the two elements that affect all shooting platforms. We train athletes based on a national program called PPP (Progressive Position Pistol under USA Shooting and the NRA); it lets youth (as young as 7 years old) enter the field of Olympic-style air pistol shooting two-handed benched supported up to age 13, then move to standing supported one-handed up to age 15, and finally to one-handed non-supported.

There are several locations that hold registered air pistol competitions, Woburn, MA and Manchester, CT are just two examples. We also compete in Postal Matches held by the Civilian Marksmanship Program, and we would like to co-host local matches with Berkshire Bullseye, another youth air pistol team located in Berkshire County, North Adams. Our season runs for 10 weeks in the spring, and you can continue through the summer as there are numerous regional and national matches offered across the country. Please check the Calendar for practice schedules. Contact Coaches Eric and Stephanie DuPont at youth@leesportsmen.com or call/text (215) 668-7808 for more information, to join, or volunteer.
