Educational Classes

The Detroit Sportsmen’s Congress contributes to our community in many ways. One of the most important areas is in the area of safety education. We make available a variety of courses to both members and nonmembers alike, using certified instructors and training counselors.

Due to COVID-19 and the current mandates, there will be no Spring Hunters Education class.

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.
