Marksmanship is more than just a team, it is a family. They have fun while maintaining the appropriate amount of seriousness necessary to be successful. The independent shooter decides on the position the work on during each practice to ensure each shooter reaches their maximum potential in each one. During after school practices on Monday and Friday, cadets learn skills they can use in shooting air rifles as well as life skills such as safety, patience, and self control. Marksmanship is competitive, not only against other schools, but against each other. The team averages around 4 competitions yearly, and cadets compete with each other to compete at the competitions.
