Rifle Team

Summerlin Academy is proud of our state of the art rifle range. The Rifle Team holds many State Titles over the years and  tryouts in the fall. This class is only offered to those on the team by instructor consent, so it is not eligible to ninth grade students as an elective.

Team Coaches: SFC(R) Steven Beck,  SFC(R) Lloyd Harris

Three Position Air Rifle
Three-Position Air Rifle Shooting is the most popular and fastest growing form of shooting sports competition for youth of high school age or younger.  Two different Three-Position Air Rifle events are available.  Precision Air Rifle is modeled after Olympic-style shooting and allows the use of specialized target rifles and equipment.  Sporter Air Rifle is designed for new competitors or those who desire to compete with a minimum of equipment and expense.  In both types of shooting, competitors fire at targets at a distance of 10 meters in three different positions, prone, standing and kneeling.  Three-Position Air Rifle provides young competitors with competitive shooting sports opportunities that can be offered on a wide variety of easily accessible or easily constructed ranges, with equipment that is commonly available at affordable costs.
