Competitive Harrisburg Association of Marksmanship Programs

Through our host club, Harrisburg Hunters' and Anglers' Association, we assist with fundraising for our youth competitive programs in several disciplines. For more information, please visit our About Us page or use the Contact Us and one of our coaches will get back to you.

Youth Shooting Seasons 

The BB gun, air rifle/small bore, and junior rifle seasons will begin soon.

Do you have a youth looking to join a competitive shooting team or just want to try? All 3 of our teams are accepting new shooters. If you register and things change, please reach out to cancel your youth's spot. Each team is limited on how many shooters they can accept. 

Our BB Gun team accepts the youngest shooters. The safety class begins the 3rd Wednesday of October every year and runs through December. Each class builds on the previous class.
