Classes for Hillsdale Students

Shooting Sports Classes

2016-2017

Prior experience is not required for enrollment in shooting sports classes. Each student, however, is required to take Intro to Shooting Sports, regardless of skill level.

In this class, instructors teach the National Rifle Association’s home safety course, history of firearms, firearms laws, and basic marksmanship. After completion, students can take classes in a variety of disciplines.

Please note that the range is about five miles from campus, and the school does not provide transportation. Many students carpool to class, and instructors assist in making arrangements for those without vehicles.
