They are taught how to properly and safely handle the air rifle through repetitive procedures before and after training. Since their establishment the marksmanship team has grown in numbers and have attended numerous competitions at neighboring campuses. Alongside traveling for competitions, North High JROTC hosts a marksmanship competition as well where cadets shoot at paper targets for points in order to place and receive a trophy or medal.
