Shooting Sports Team
One of the most exciting and popular new student teams at Ecclesia College in Springdale, Arkansas is the Royals Shooting Sports Team. Inspired by the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission's youth shooting program and the National Shooting Foundation, the team is being formed in summer and fall 2011. Students on the team range from beginners to experienced shooters and have the opportunity to join in competition against other colleges and universities. Merit-based Shooting Sports Scholarships are available for 2012-13!
Participation in the Shooting Sports Team is just one of many outdoor adventures one can find at a college that is perfectly situated in the heart of the beautiful Ozark Mountains.
