SHS JROTC RIFLE MARKSMANSHIP AND RIFLE TEAM INFORMATION
The type of rifle marksmanship that is taught and practiced in the JROTC program is three-position air rifle shooting that is done with 4.5 mm (.177 cal.) air rifles with the targets placed at a distance of 10 meters. JROTC riflery was once done with .22 cal. rim fire rifles with the targets placed at a distance of 50 feet. Three-position air rifle target shooting that is done by JROTC cadets is closely related to the air rifle standing and three-position smallbore rifle events that are in the program of the Summer Olympic Games.
