DSC’s provides courses “as needed”. The most popular courses are taught on a regular schedule while others are offered on an annual basis.

DSC’s Education Committee also coordinates our Club’s Junior Training Activities. Friday evenings the club offers a Junior Rifle and a Junior Pistol program. Juniors take part in the NRA training and certification, winning awards, patches and medals for each skill level attained. “Postal” and “Shoulder to shoulder” matches teach marksmanship, concentration, patience and above all safety. Other Junior programs are being planned for the future.

The Detroit Sportsmen's Congress (DSC) was founded in Detroit Michigan in 1936 for the purpose of promoting better hunting and fishing within the state.
