Virtual Shooting Ranges: The Safer Alternative for Youth Exposure


When it comes to youth groups such as the Boy Scouts of America and Girl Scouts of the USA, shooting sports has grown in popularity. As a result, there are millions of young people all over the nation who participate in sports such as archery, rifle shooting, and more.

The value in mastering these skills is highly beneficial to today’s youth as it helps them develop into responsible and productive citizens as adults. Additionally, by learning skills in marksmanship, accountable and safe use of firearms, and the fundamental principles of holding and firing a gun, youth organizations can instill a sense of confidence and responsibility in the kids they teach.

Virtual Training for Scouts & Youth Programs

Engage Virtual Range was founded with the sole purpose of providing a safe, judgment-free atmosphere for shooters of all skill levels to master proper gun handling and shooting techniques while also growing confidence in their abilities.

Our virtual shooting bays were built to provide a life-like experience that is safe, fun, and educational. It is a safe alternative to live-fire shooting, and absolutely no live-fire or ammunition is allowed on-premise. Instead, all shooters use sim guns designed to provide the look and feel of a traditional firearm without the potential danger of a live-fire gun.

EVR offers a youth program that provides hands-on training, firearms safety education, and marksmanship skill-building to cater to youth organizations specifically. The 90-minute session involves 45 minutes of classroom-style instruction on gun safety and shooting fundamentals (grip, aim, stance, trigger pull). The other 45 minutes is spent engaging in hands-on virtual shooting exercises that allow youth to apply what they’ve learned and worked toward growing their skillset.

Our youth shooting experience includes:

  1. 90 minutes of personalized and professional instruction
    • 45 minutes of classroom-style instruction on firearms safety and shooting fundamentals
    • 45 minutes of hands-on virtual shooting exercises and drills
  2. Education on range safety rules, shooting fundamentals, and safe gun handling
  3. Hands-on skill-building through interactive activities and drills
  4. A judgment-free atmosphere that promotes learning
  5. All training can be customizable to meet the specific needs of your organization

At Engage Virtual Range, we are passionate about the importance of instilling responsible gun handling in youth shooters. Our instructors have experience delivering youth training and can work with your organization to customize a curriculum that makes sense for the audience.
