Academy Programs & Classes

Here at the Blackwood Shooting Academy we strive to provide diverse curriculum for our students. As you'll see below, we have classes to teach virtually every aspect of defensive shooting.

BSA employs a variety of teaching formats. Academy classes are typically 2-3 hours long, and focus on a single set of related skills. The majority of the class time is spent on the range. The NRA classes are more formal, and are typically 8 hours long. BSA also offers women-only classes, youth classes, and private lessons.

We want our students to retain what they've learned so we use supervised practice sessions, and shooting matches as a learning tools.

We have something for everyone! And you can take classes as many times as you want.
