The Pekin Rifle Team also know as Rifle Fire competes in air rifle competitions state and nation wide. Tryouts are typically in October and Competitions are held against other schools, at home and away from the months of November through February. We also compete in some “postal competitions” where we shoot targets and they get sent in for scoring against other teams. If the team qualifies at the end of the year certain higher scorers will be picked to compete at Camp Perry, Ohio for NRA Air Rifle Nationals.

Requirements For Rifle:

Must go through try-outs

Must have a sports physical on file each year

MUST PASS with a 100% a safety test administer in class

Must be passing at least 5 classes to be eligible for meets
