The Marksmanship Club and Rifle Team focuses on developing precision marksmanship of the cadets in the Chippewa Battalion. The cadre responsible for this club includes a nationally competitive marksman and a military trained sniper. Cadets receive focused training on .22 caliber competition-grade rifles, the M-16 rifle and the M-9 handgun, as well as various other weapons employed by the United States Army.
The club utilizes our one-of-a-kind indoor rifle range, donated by Brigadier General (retired) John Kulhavi, on a weekly basis. They also take advantage of ranges in our local community and Army National Guard Posts to fire larger weapons and even provide familiarization with weapons like the M-249 Squad Automatic Weapon.
The Rifle Team competes in national postal matches and is laying the groundwork for a local competition with other ROTC programs in the near future.
