The Cadet Marksmanship Program is modelled after Olympic style shooting. We train on the 853C Air Rifle and emphasize safety, team building, and mental focus. In this program, five principles of marksmanship are taught to help cadets improve their skills – position, aiming, holding, breathing, and trigger control.
Competitions are structured on three levels – Zone Competitions, Provincial Competitions, and National Competitions. Teams from air, army, and sea cadet units attend.
Marksmanship practice is held on Fridays from 1800-2130. Most times it is open for everyone to attend, but the focus is on the marksmanship team.
Cadets attending that are not on the team will get to experience assisting with the range, and learn tips and tricks to improve.
