Overview:  Originally founded in 1883, the Harvard Shooting Club is one of Harvard's oldest organizations. The club became inactive in 2002, until a group of undergraduates came together to revive it in the fall of 2009. Since then, the HSC has grown significantly and has offered many opportunities for both beginners and experienced shooters to safely enjoy multiple shooting disciplines, including shotgun trap and skeet, and pistol and rifle target shooting. We now have 50 core team members and more than 350 people on our mailing list. We have also received more than $13,000 in funding from a variety of grants and institutions, including the National Shooting Sports Foundation. In the spring of 2010, we competed with approximately ten other New England college teams in the first annual New England Collegiate Clay Championships. With our new official Harvard club sport status and our existing financial resources, we plan on training a competitive shooting team and continuing to provide a safe and fun environment to introduce shooting sports to all interested Harvard affiliates.
