NORTH FORSYTH HIGH SCHOOL RIFLE TEAM

Overview

The Rifle Team competes under rules set forth by the Georgia High School Athletic Association. All equipment required to compete is provided by the Marine Corps JROTC program.  All shooters have to provide is their shoes and current sports physical.  Shooters must be enrolled in the MCJROTC program.

As many potential shooters lack experience in precision shooting competition (this is much different than hitting coke cans with a .22) the first two weeks are devoted to addressing basic rifle safety rules and marksmanship techniques. Gender is not an issue in shooting.

We currently carry a team roster of 11 shooters.  To receive a NFHS letter, a shooter must shoot in at least three matches and attend a minimum of 75% of the team’s practices.
