Sports & Recreation
The purpose of the Grand Valley Shooting Team is to provide all Grand Valley students with the opportunity to enjoy rifle sports and shooting during the school year. Students with all level of skill are able to have a safe and enjoyable time at the shooting range interacting with other students and shooting. Some of the main focuses of the team are teaching and promoting firearm safety and developing shooting skills. The team participates in monthly postal matches as well as several weekend matches during the school year in the Western Intercollegiate Rifle Conference (WIRC), a ten college rifle league. Being a member of the WIRC allows shooters to participate and compete in three position small-bore (.22 long rifle) and air rifle (.177 pellet). Experience is not needed and all equipment, including rifles, is provided. Practice is held at the Grand Rapids Rifle & Pistol Club (1331 Nagel SW/Grand Rapids, MI 49509), an indoor range with a state of the art air circulation system to keep the air fresh while shooting as well year round climate control. New members are always welcome.
