The cadet marksmanship program has been specifically designed for youth and is based on Olympic competition. The focus is on teaching cadets the proper use and safe handling of firearms. Cadets use the Daisy 853C air rifle that fires a .177 caliber pellet and has a round aperture sight. Because of the low muzzle velocity, the Daisy 853C is not classified as a firearm under federal legislation.
Practices are held weekly and provide cadets with the opportunity to develop their marksmanship skills and earn Qualification badges.
The range team competes annually in various competitions, culminating in the zone competition, held each April. Teams and individual cadets with exemplary results may qualify to move on to provincial and national level cadet air rifle competitions.
