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. Most of our affiliated clubs have programs serving youth shooters. VSSA junior shooters have won national championships and some have competed at the collegiate level. Working with the NRA Foundation, we have provided mini-grants to affiliated gun clubs in the past to put on NRA Shooting Sports Camps. We also have provided mini-grants to affiliated clubs for Women on Target clinics. These clinics introduce women to the shooting sports in a fun and safe atmosphere. Mini-grants are only available if VSSA has received support from the NRA Foundation.
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. All VSSA members need to provide to CMP is a copy of your membership card at the time you place your order.
