Get Youth Involved In Shooting Sports

Preserving our heritage of freedom depends on getting young people involved in the shooting sports. Whether it be competitive shooting, plinking or hunting, studies have shown that if an individual is not introduced to these activities at a young age, the chances of them taking them up as an adult are greatly reduced.

With this in mind, the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (DGIF) along with the Virginia Outdoor Writers Association and other youth oriented sportsmen organizations are partnering with the Bass Pro Shops store in Hampton in hosting a "Next Generation" Weekend August 22-23 as part of the chain's 2009 Fall Hunting Classic. The weekend will provide a fun-filled youth oriented event with activities and seminars throughout the day from 11 a.m. till 6 p.m.

This is an excellent opportunity to introduce a young person the the great outdoors.
