• Varsity Rifle Team



    SAFETY  -  FUN  -  MARKSMANSHIP


    The Coed Varsity Rifle Team competes at the varsity level against other high school rifle teams in Western New York and across New York State. It's the only sport where males and females compete against each other without restrictions, using competition air rifles. There are 8 Section VI rifle teams participating in 3-position air rifle and 30 Shot Offhand air rifle competitions, which involve prone (laying), off-hand (standing), and kneeling positions.

    This winter sport runs from November to March, with practices and home matches held at the indoor rifle range in Lancaster High School's basement. Practices are from 3-5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and matches typically occur on Tuesdays and Thursdays, occasionally on Wednesdays. To attend tryouts, you'll need clear safety glasses, and once on the team, you should purchase a shooting glove and foam earplugs. The school provides rifles and equipment, but you can choose to use your own if you prefer.

    "Think Center, Aim Center, Shoot Center!"

    ONLINE SIGNUPS are October 2nd - October 10th, 2023

    Tryouts/practice begins the week of November 13th at the school rifle range from 3-5 PM. More information to come!
