Woodfield Range Officer

Training and Certification
Mar 11, 2017    or    Sept 16, 2017

Purpose:   ONSC guidelines require specific procedures and advanced qualification for Range Officers to conduct shooting sports at the Woodfield Ranges during District Family Encampments and Shooting Sports Weekend events. Individuals completing this course will receive BB/Archery/WRO certification (valid for 2 years) and be expected to act as Range Safety Officer for at least two Woodfield events in the next 12 months. The emphasis for this program will be training in specific Woodfield procedures (safety, opening/closing ranges, equipment), training in how to run Woodfield ranges safely and efficiently for various size groups, training in how to teach basic BB Gun and Archery skills to Cub Scouts, and training in various shooting and scoring procedures related to cub scout shooting awards.  (Note: The BB/Archery certification is valid for all BSA cub scout shooting sports activities including Day Camps for any BSA councils – the WRO certification portion is specific to our council and is valid only within ONSC).

All district Family Camping events and every Shooting Sports Weekend event requires a certified Woodfield Range Officer for each range used. The Woodfield Range Officer Committee is responsible for providing certified WRO’s for each event (WRO’s are BSA registered adults who have completed this course and are willing to volunteer to serve as Range Officers and Instructors for scheduled events).

In order to provide a higher quality shooting experience for Cub Scouts Old North State Council has implemented a new program at Woodfield. Shooting Sports Weekends are council scheduled events (once a month in off-season) where packs can register with the council and reserve a BB and Archery range for 75 minutes each for up to 30 shooters – a Woodfield Range Officer will be assigned as Range Safety Officer and Instructor. These events provide a more in-depth quality shooting experience for the cubs than the typical “day camp” or “family camp” events – with more emphasis on acquiring skills and completing belt loop, sports pin, and certificate awards.
