VSC Junior Rifle Team
The Junior Rifle team program started in the fall of 2013. Those from age 8 to 18 that have an interest in Air Rifle or BB Gun marksmanship are welcome to participate. We meet at the Viola Community Building once phr. week from January through April. Team members participate in numerous postal mail-in matches plus one traveling match to Chippewa Falls along with our own competition hosted in the community building in April. The team averages in size from 14 to 20 shooters each year. In 2016, at the Chippewa Falls shoot, the team's BB Gun shooters took 1st place and the Air Rifle team secured a 2nd place team finish with many individual awards handed out as well. Thanks to the work of the coach, Barry Peterson, the team continues to grow in popularity each year.
