Looking for a way to get your youth involved with the shooting sports?

The Central Arkansas Hawkeyes youth shooting sports club is expanding the ways that your children can get introduced to the world of shooting sports, educationally & competitively.


Explore all of the programs we have to offer below!


Youth Competitive Programs

For years our competitive program has been synonymous with precision BB Gun competition.  The Central Arkansas Hawkeyes club is expanding, and with that comes more opportunities.  Depending on interest and the number of people that register for these programs, here are the disciplines that we now offer to our youth.  We have limited space in each discipline so be sure to sign up for your area of interest.  Registration will begin in August to correspond with National Shooting Sports Month.  Seasons run in conjunction with the standard school year calendar.  Practices usually start in early fall with matches taking place in winter, spring, or even summer.
