BSA requires all Cub Scout shooting sports (including Cub Scout archery, BB guns, wrist rockets/slingshots, catapults or rockets) to be supervised by a BSA certified range master. At the Cub Scout level, BB guns and archery are only allowed at district and council-operated events, and may not be conducted at the pack or den level. Archery range masters may also conduct archery events at the troop, crew, and post level.
This training is a four-hour course that covers setting up a range, safety, handling equipment, using a bow stringer, maintaining and storing equipment, and instructing Scouts. This certification is valid for two years from the course completion date.
