The air is still, the range is quiet as the members of the rifle team aim at their tiny targets. Suddenly, the silence is broken by bursts of air and sharp cracks as the pellets find their ways to the bulls eyes. This is a typical scenario of what the rifle team does when they compete and practice.
Deadly Accuracy; this is what you must strive to achieve if you wish to be a part of this elite team. This feat requires great amounts of patience, concentration, and precision. Through self-discipline, members of the rifle team are highly skilled in controlling their involuntary body movements, and reaching a level of concentration which grants them their full potential.
By honing the skills mentioned previously (which very few people are actually cable of doing) you qualify to be a part of the BCHS JROTC Rifle Team!
