Programs and Affiliates

Women & Junior Programs

VSSA Youth Programs offer many opportunities for youths who are interested in the shooting sports and our firearms heritage. VSSA junior shooters have won national championships and some have competed at the collegiate level. Working with the NRA Foundation, we provide mini-grants to gun clubs to put on NRA Shooting Sports Camps. We also provide mini-grants to clubs for Women on Target clinics. These clinics introduce women to the shooting sports in a fun and safe atmosphere.

Civilian Marksmanship Program

VSSA is affiliated with the Civilian Marksmanship Program. Membership in an official CMP organization is a prerequisite to purchasing (at a very reasonable cost) surplus firearms that CMP occasionally makes available from U.S. arsenals.
