Shooting Sports Committee

Minsi Trails Council Shooting Sports Committee is committed to serving in an ongoing manner the units and districts of Minsi Trails Council.  MTC Shooting Sports Committee meets on the 4rd Monday of each month.  The committee spends many hours each month in service, providing NRA course training and range officer support.  

The committee knows there are many more leaders and instructors who may be able to commit more time and energy than in the past.  MTC Shooting Sports offers many opportunities for NRA basic and or advanced training. 

Below is the personal pledge the MTC Shooting Sports Committee adheres to:

I agree to help the Minsi Trails Council, Boy Scouts of America in the creation and/or implementation of the year round shooting sports program within the Minsi Trails Council of the Boy Scouts of America. The purpose of this commitment is to provide the local Council with resources to help with the shooting sports merit badge program and the year round shooting sports program offered to Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturing within the Council. I understand the importance and the necessity of my participation in order to assist the Council in a successful year round BSA shooting sports program.

  • Help recruit at least one additional member to help promote the Shooting Sports Program within the Minsi Trails Council.
  • Attend & support MTC Shooting Sports Committee run activities/programs.
  • Attend MTC Shooting Sports Committee meetings each year.

I understand that this is a voluntary commitment to BSA and the Minsi Trails Council Shooting Sports Committee that I am willing to fulfill this obligation to the BSA and the NRA for the training which I have or will participate in. I am dedicated to helping develop the interest in shooting sports in the youth of America by giving back to Scouting for what I have received.
