Shelby County Shooting Sports Association (SCSSA)

Birmingham, Alabama


Our junior rifle program is open to youth ages 9-18.  SCSSA was established in 2003 to teach gun safety and marksmanship skills and to promote the shooting sports in Alabama.  We have continued this endeavor to the present.

SCSSA is a 4-H Rifle program, BUT, we are more than that.  Boy Scouts are able to complete their Rifle Merit Badge with us.  Outreach to other organizations is conducted on request based on time available.  NRA certified courses are offered by our coaches. Our teams compete at events around the country.  Join us to learn and develop your shooting skills.

Completion of an approved firearm safety course is required!
