Anyone planning to supervise a shooting range at a District or Council event, including: Cub Scout or Boy Scout Archery, BB Guns, Wrist Rockets (Slingshots), Catapults or Rockets needs to take Range Master training. BSA requires all Cub Scout shooting sports to be supervised by a BSA certified Range Master. Range Master training covers setting up a range, safety, handling equipment, using a bow stringer, maintaining and storing equipment and instructing Scouts.
Pre-registration is strongly encouraged so enough trainers and handouts are available
