The DSC also runs an informal indoor service rifle practice league during the winter months. Check the DSC calendar for dates and times. This indoor practice league does not qualify for NRA/CMP awards. The course of fire is the same as the highpower league using reduced size Service Rifle targets for 50 feet. The league is shot with 22LR conversions for AR-15 platform rifles or any other any rifle firing the 22LR cartridge.

Shooters need not join the league to come out and shoot the course of fire, but league shooters will be given preference if we have a full line. Range Fees are payable prior to each match/practice. A league fee is also due prior to the start of the season. An additional league fee is charged for an Associate Member. Print, complete and submit Rifle League Application Form with the appropriate league fees. The league fee covers the league banquet with door prizes. The Banquet is normally held the first Saturday in December.

A competitor's last 10 record matches shot are for DSC League score and standings for awards. Awards will be based on the Lewis System. A shooter must shoot 10 matches to qualify for awards. For NRA Classification, scores from the last 6 matches shot for score will be submitted to the NRA for classification. If a competitor doesn't fire 10 matches for score, the last 6 matches fired will be utilized for NRA classification. Scores are submitted to the NRA for classification at the end of the league. All league targets must be completed during the course of one (1) league season. Competitors who want the NRA/CMP awards will have to order the required awards from the NRA/CMP at their own expense.

Once a year in June the DSC also offers a 2-day Service Rifle Clinic. It is a great way to learn the basics of NRA/CMP highpower competition, including, the course of fire, positions, targets, service rifle operation, loading, clearing and firing. Keep an eye on the calendar for dates and times.
