Our youth program (Junior Olympic Program) runs from September to May at the Saskatoon Wildlife Federation indoor range. Youth archers submit scores and earn badges while working on their archery skills. We occasionally have fun shoots and 3D shoots as well as attend other tournaments and the Provincial JOP Championship each year.
Our current JOP Coordinator is Rhonda Kincade.
Our adult program is open to anyone over the age of 16 who are shooting at an 18 meter distance or further. This program also runs from September to May at the Saskatoon Wildlife Federation indoor range. The adult program also participates in a Mail Match and does fun shoots and 3D shoots on occasion. Many of our adult members also attend the SAA Provincial Tournament each year.
Our current Adult Coordinator is Kelly Nicholls. Our current Assistant Adult Coordinator is Judy Closson.
Private Group Bookings are at a rate of $150/hour for up to 20 archers. Our club can supply equipment for these bookings or you may bring your own. One of our two certified coaches will run these bookings and teach some basic introductory archery.

Saskatoon Rifle and Revolver Club operating at the Saskatoon Wildlife Federation offers a junior shooting program for youth 10 years and older. The youth are taught competition style air rifle and air pistol target shooting. All equipment, targets and pellets are supplied.
The Introductory Program begins with a safety talk and orientation. Youth can decide on air rifle or air pistol to start and can change at any time. Focus at this stage is learning how to use the sights and getting their shots close together. Eventually they are shooting without a stand and work on gaining balance and accuracy.
LEVELS IN THE PROGRAM
As the youth gain accuracy in their shooting, they work through various levels of achievement. Some chose to display their levels in the form of rings on a plaque. Youth earn their way to competing, if they wish, at the Provincial level, out of province and eventually at national competitions.
HIGH PERFORMANCE PROGRAM
In competition, women shoot 40 shots and men shoot 60 shots. High performance shooters can compete at events such as Grand Prix in Toronto, Canada Winter Games, Nationals in Ontario and eventually earn a position on the Canadian National Junior Team and perhaps a position on the Developmental Team for Canada.
Successes of the Junior Athletes:
Commonwealth Games as a Canadian Competitor
Junior Olympics in Sydney Australia
Canada Winter Games Gold medalist in 2011 and 2015

IPSC - International Practical Shooting Confederation
IPSC is a style of shooting which attempts to measure the ability to shoot rapidly and accurately with a handgun, rifle, and/or shotgun. Three elements: speed, accuracy, and power (calibre) - form the three sides of the practical shooting triangle. By design each match will measure a shooter's ability in all three areas.
PPC - Practical Police Combat
PPC is a somewhat slower type of target shooting and is a great way to get a new shooter into competition and hone the skills of sight alignment and trigger control. There are both traditional revolver and semi-auto classes.
The object of the competition is to knock down metallic silhouettes (chickens, pigs, turkeys, and rams) at various ranges to a maximum of 200 meters. There are classes for various handguns, and small bore rifles (.22).
Please check the SWF Range schedule for shoot times.
