Rockin' Shots - 4-H National Shooting Team
The Rockingham County 4-H Shooting Sports Team, Rockin’ Shots, has had another very successful year! At the Virginia State Championship competition, Spring Air, our members shot personal bests, and won. As a result of their placing at the state level, the Rockin’ Shots team will be representing Rockingham County as one of the top teams from Virginia at the 52nd Annual Daisy National Championship! This national level match will be held June 29th – July 3rd in Rogers, Arkansas.
Team members shoot in four positions at paper targets that are five meters away. They are then scored on the Orion Scoring System. Members shoot with Daisy’s Model 499 Champion, known as the most accurate BB gun in the world. Members are also required to take a 50-question shooting safety test that is included in their overall score. All team members have completed a 10-lesson curriculum, have received extensive training under the NRA rules, and will continue to practice and study between now and the competition in July.
