NRA Grant Assists Youth Rifle Program

posted on July 20, 2016

The competitive rifle program at East Stroudsburg South High School in Pennsylvania—which offers teams for grades 7-12—is one of the most successful in the state, and has taken the Northeast Pennsylvania Rifle League title for the past two seasons. Coach Jay Armitage gives much of the credit to the NRA Foundation.

The foundation has offered numerous grants to the Cavaliers over the years, and the most recent for $5,000 helped provide for materials that included three .22 caliber bolt-action Anschutz target rifles and three cases of Winchester .22 ammunition. Rising ammunition costs over the past five years, combined with a school budget that has remained constant, has made the NRA Foundation’s support even more critical. 

“Number one, it allows more students to participate,” said Armitage. “It keeps our equipment up to date, and our league is becoming more competitive every year.”
