TEXAS JUNIOR RIFLE TEAM
Informally organized Texas state teams have existed for over 40 years. These efforts have typically been sponsored by various local gun clubs with the ability to provide range access, equipment, and willing adult leaders. In many cases, junior shooters from these clubs collaborated to shoot in national competition under the banner of the Texas State Rifle Association with some impressive results.
The organization of a legal entity to manage these efforts was achieved with the April 2018 incorporation of “Texas Junior Rifle Team, Inc.” as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We are sanctioned by the Texas State Rifle Association to compete as a TSRA entity.
MANAGEMENT OF THE CORPORATION IS VESTED IN THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS.
