Adaptive Shooting Sports Offers Free Training for Shooters with Physical Challenges
Adaptive Shooting Sports is affiliated with the Mid America Chapter of the Paralyzed Veterans of America and they extend their services to both veterans and non-veterans alike. The training classes are set to take place Saturday Mornings at 8:30 a.m at the Tulsa Gun Club. Those that are interested only need to sign up at the website here.
Additional training days are set for August 22nd, September 12th, and September 26th. Adaptive Shooting Sports also accepts help from volunteers as well as professional organizations willing to offer their experience to help these shooters. With this additional training and experience, Adaptive Shooting Sports hopes to open up shooting sports to more people than ever.
Training at the facility is conducted with the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation’s Shotgun Training and Education Program instruction team. The team focuses on Trapshooting for high school shooters, however, they are adapting their training instructions for those with physical challenges. So whether the shooters need help shouldering the shotgun or are shooting from a wheelchair the team has dedicated itself to finding a solution for those participants.
Once the team has helped the shooters become proficient in skeet shooting, they then progress on further to other disciplines such as 5 stand, sporting clays as well as hunting of live flying game. If you’d like to help out Adaptive Shooting Sports and are available in the Tulsa Oklahoma area they are in need of general helpers.
