Welcome, Liz Marsh! Friend of the Hawkeyes and Guest Instructor!

We would like to introduce all of you to our friend and fellow volunteer, Elizabeth Marsh.  Liz is a highly accomplished air rifle and small bore shooter.  She is a decorated member of the USA Shooting program and a NCAA small bore champion!  Liz has graciously volunteered her time, upon availability, to help as a guest instructor for our precision program.  She is an invaluable source of skill and information, and she is a consummate friend to youth shooting sports in Arkansas.  We extend to her, and her family, a hearty welcome and thank you!

We are EXCITED about the future! The Central Arkansas Hawkeyes program has expanded. The future starts today, and it starts with you!

We look forward to the success of all of our programs and teams.  That success starts by listening to input and feedback.  We value the feedback of our directors, our coaches, our youth and parents, and our volunteers.  Please let us know how we are doing.  We appreciate the opportunity to bring these programs to our community!
