Our facility and program are under renovation
The Junior Rifle program is currently in hiatus during renovation of the indoor range.
The Schuetzen came to America with German immigrants and is used in challenging long-range competition. Its German root is from the word Schütze which can be translated as “shooter.” The Schuetzen is both a rifle and a style of competition steeped in European shooting tradition. The original Schuetzens that arrived with German immigrants were muzzle loaders. Breech Loading Schuetzens are now the rule in competition. Matches are shot at 200 yards with a specialized Schuetzen target.
The OCSA 50th Anniversary Schuetzenfest rifle match will take place on August 2, 3 & 4, 2019. Due to the special nature of this anniversary, OCSA hopes for a great turnout. Please see this FLYER for event information.
