Youth Hunter Education Challenge (Y.H.E.C.)

Attention young sportsmen and women ages 10-18. Interested in improving your hunting skills and learning more about hunting methods and game species with other young hunters? Then join us, The Youth Hunter Education Challenge (YHEC) program on 1st and 3rd Sundays from 1:00 pm-4:00 pm for a unique opportunity to test and improve your abilities in a variety of hunting techniques and skills.

The program includes training in the use of shotgun, rifle and bow as well as instruction in outdoor skills such as wildlife identification, hunter safety, ethics and map and compass orienteering. State and provincial level YHEC programs draw an estimated 15,000 youths each year. Top ranked individuals advance to the annual NRA International Youth Hunter Education Challenge. Since its inception in 1985, YHEC has reached more than a million young sportsmen and women. Our program has participated at the state level for the past several years as well as at the international level.

NRA Marksmanship Program

Qualification shooting is an informal activity that runs in conjunction with both youth programs and provides incentive awards for developing and improving marksmanship skills. Shooters acquire a discipline patch and as each rating is earned, they receive a skill level rocker, medal, and certificate that recognize and highlight their achievement. The courses of fire in the qualification program are designed to take shooters from beginning skill levels (Pro-Marksman, Marksman) through intermediate levels (Marksman 1st Class, Sharpshooter, Expert) up to a nationally recognized skill level—Distinguished Expert—the pinnacle of the program. By the time a shooter completes the Distinguished Expert rating, he or she has attained a proficiency level paralleling that of a competitively classified Sharpshooter.

For more information contact education@lcciwla.org (Shotgun Range) using the contact form on the sidebar or visit the NRA Marksmanship Program website.

The skeet range also runs a Family Skeet Marksmanship Program that families can participate in at their own pace and on their own schedule.
