Default Youth Competitions?

Hello,

First post here, but my 14 year old son loves to shoot and has expressed interest in doing competitive shooting. Anyone have any advice as to where to look or reputable groups that do youth competitive shooting? TIA

Look into your local 4-H club. They should have some type of shooting sports.

This is not a competition but it will speed up his learning curve. Especially if shoots NRA smallbore. He will also get first hand information about local competitions. Not to mention the confidence boost that a rifleman patch gives a young man.
