If you’re thinking about college, you may be worried that you’ll have to let your shooting skills get rusty. You’ll be glad to know that there are more than 500 shooting programs on college and university campuses across the United States. This is because more and more schools are discovering that shooting programs are considerably less expensive than other athletic programs. They’re also learning what you’ve known for years: Shooting is exceptionally safe and helps develop sportsmanship, leadership, responsibility and concentration. Competitive shooting also teaches self-discipline and teamwork. Generally, collegiate shooting programs appear in the curriculum as educational courses, intramural or recreational programs and intercollegiate competition.

One of the easiest ways to shoot as a college student is to join a marksmanship intramural program. Shooting is a coed sport, and virtually all students on campus can take part. Intramurals are fun and can offer dorms and independent groups the chance to compete with each other and learn about the responsibility of using and owning guns.

At the center of most collegiate shooting programs is competition. Intercollegiate clubs or teams engage in postal (competitors are in different locations) or shoulder-to-shoulder (competitors are on the same range) matches.
