West Georgia Youth Range is the realization of a 20 year old dream – a 20 year old dream to provide a venue for citizens, young and old, to be taught to responsibly, safely and skillfully handle firearms. A venue where a sense of community, sense of belonging and an appreciation for our constitutional rights to keep and bear arms can be fostered and preserved. The purpose of the Association is to provide age-appropriate youth education, sponsor and promote good sportsmanship through proficient and enjoyable participation in shooting sports and provide a fun and safe environment for those activities. Both recreation and competitive shooting opportunities will exist for multiple disciplines of shooting competition that encompass trap, skeet, rifle and pistol. WGYRA is dedicated to the development of shooting sports for local youth and promotion of the safe and responsible handling of firearms and weapons, and to create an atmosphere of healthy competition and meaningful fellowship for those who participate. Youth groups will be introduced and educated in the various shooting sports, and WGYRA will provide opportunities to strengthen youth development and life skills necessary to become productive and respected adults of the community.
