Blue Trail Range hosts various shooting competitions and leagues for both junior and adult competitors.
We provide a safe environment for shooters to test their skills against other competitors or enjoy unique events like the Nutmeg State Games. We also run leagues, such as our new Midnite-Moonlite league, that give participants a chance to compete on a weekly basis. Join a league or register for a competition for a chance to win prizes or the opportunity to enjoy some friendly competition.

Junior Olympic Shooting Championship (JORC)
Junior shooters are able to participate in State Competitions sanctioned by USA Shooting, allowing them the chance to receive an invitation to shoot at the National Junior Olympic Championships hosted by USA Shooting in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The program serves as an important element of USA Shooting’s pipeline development system in promoting the shooting sports. Junior Olympic goals are to allow the skilled junior athletes to obtain National competitive experience for future development and also serves as an opportunity to appoint the top finishers to the National Junior Team.
