New Shooter Series: Safety, Drills, and Hands-On Training EVR Academy

Age-Appropriate Firearms Education and Training


We believe that learning responsible and safe firearm handling can start at any age. So if you or your child is interested in learning to shoot or firearm handling, our new shooter introductory series is the perfect place to start.

New Shooter Intro Series

This 3-part series is aimed at youth, families, and small groups who want to learn to shoot. The age-appropriate curriculum promotes safety and develops a positive mindset about shooting sports. Intended for 2-6 participants, each shooting session features hands-on training led by professional and passionate instructors. Upon completing our youth shooting programs, each graduate will receive a certificate of completion and an exclusive EVR challenge coin.

This youth shooting class is taught in a private, safe, and judgment-free atmosphere to promote learning and build confidence.
