That children who engage in shooting sports are always successful students. It not only brings fun but also teaches
your child discipline, concentration, mindfulness, respectful interaction with others, and, of course, handling sports equipment.
Concentration is the most crucial aspect in school, studies, and professional life. If your child struggles to learn and cannot sit calmly
behind the books, it is not only challenging for your child but also for you as parents.
This is how you can enthusiastically teach your child these essential qualities and provide them with a real benefit for life.
2nd German Champion Maximilian Ostmann of the Leye in the Junior Class of 2023.
Clay pigeon shooting is allowed from the age of 14, and here too, the exception confirms the rule. Maximilian was born in February 2011
and shoots with the SSC Schale. After his parents waited for a year for an exemption under § 27 (4) of the Weapons Act (WaffG),
Maximilian has been actively shooting since September 2022.
He started with a caliber 36 and switched to a caliber 20 Beretta on his 12th birthday. It’s a pleasure to watch Maximilian shoot.
It’s incredible how calmly Maximilian moves in the field and works with great composure during shooting.
Since then, Maximilian has regularly participated in competitions and has qualified for his first German Championship.
We congratulate Maximilian warmly and wish him continued success!
Success vindicates his parents. They, along with their 9-year-old daughter, are among the spectators, cheering for their “Mäxchen.”
It’s a family event.
2nd German Champion Celina Holzner in the Junior Class of 2023.
Celina is 13 years old and secured 2nd place at the German Championship 2023 in the Air Pistol discipline with 347 points.
Celina has been shooting air pistol and air pistol dueling for a year now. She has been in the association squad for a year.
Squad training takes place once a month. When I ask Celina what such training is like, she says, “We practice Lupi (air pistol)
MLP, using training and competition targets. There are shooting games like ‘Fox Hunt’ and ‘Garden Fence.’ And it’s a lot of fun!”
The training program includes shared lunches and dinners, coordination and strength training, as well as concentration and posture
exercises. As a recreational sport, Celina enjoys jogging, swimming, and bowling.
The coach is creative in keeping the young shooters engaged, making training always varied and interesting. The juniors
are assigned homework, which the coach checks four weeks later. Jürgen Weidmann, the coach, says, “I can tell when one of my students
hasn’t done their homework.”
The age groups are divided as follows: 5 – 10 years are in the Schüler (students) category,
11 – 16 are Schüler (junior students), up to 18 are Jugendliche (youth), and over 18, they become Junioren (juniors).
Celina particularly enjoys the trips to Suhl, Freimd, and Hannover for the association youth competitions and the Pistol Team Cup.
Coach Jürgen Weidmann proudly says, “It’s a pleasure for me to promote and teach such talented athletes. It’s a great team.”
We congratulate you warmly and wish you continued success!
TEC – HRO has produced this lightweight rifle: Unique and Featherlight
It was thought about, refined, and tinkered with until it was finally ready – the light rifle for children aged 8 and above has been built
and brought to the market.
The light rifle that grows with you.
The light point system from TEC – HRO, in combination with the technology from Anschütz and Feinwerkbau, has achieved a perfect
combination. The light point shooting has been well received and accepted by the German Shooting Sports Federation (DSB).
This light point rifle meets the requirements of the German Shooting Sports Federation and its rules.
The stock has been meticulously designed and weighs only 2.5 kg. Children from 8 to 12 years old can use it, and the stock effortlessly
adapts to your child’s needs, just like an adult rifle. The cheek height and side of the stock are adjustable, and the stock length
and grip are anatomically shaped. The grip can be adjusted longitudinally and swiveled. This light rifle is the lightest on the market
yet highly versatile in its adjustments. Children can now keep up with the “bigger ones” and learn concentration and stamina in a fun and easy way.
Shooting sports promote creativity, speed, coordination, dexterity, and concentration in children, and they are introduced to shooting sports
in a playful manner while also catering to their urge for movement at this age.
The DSB also wishes for more children to join. Air rifle shooting is allowed from the age of 12. Special permits are possible; please contact a shooting club or the relevant authority in your city. Air rifle shooting is allowed from the age of 12.
