Project Mapleseed is a rifle marksmanship training program that focuses on teaching traditional rifle marksmanship from standing, sitting/kneeling, and prone positions in a one day shooting clinic termed a “Mapleseed”. They are a non-profit, all volunteer run organization committed to helping Canadians develop fundamental marksmanship skills and in the safe handling of firearms
A Mapleseed Event is a one-day marksmanship instruction event that provides attendees with a full day of marksmanship instruction. Attendees are taught the principles needed to build a stable shooting position, the 6 steps of firing the perfect shot and finding their Natural Point of Aim.
Project Mapleseed is challenging, educational, engaging and fun! Project Mapleseed’s goal is to introduce current and future firearm enthusiasts to essential safety and marksmanship skills along with sharing the important role of firearms in Canadian history. In sharing this history, we hope to encourage these individuals to help preserve our firearms heritage and freedoms in Canada.
Mapleseed Events are intended for anyone interested in learning about and improving their understanding of the marksmanship fundamentals. Project Mapleseed is open to shooters of all ages. The minimum you need is a .22 rifle, 400 rounds of ammunition and a teachable attitude. Mapleseed is open to all calibers and sight types including scopes. The .22LR semi-automatic, magazine-fed rifles are the most commonly seen for their ease of use during the mandatory magazine changes and low ammo cost. Bring what you have, the shooting fundamentals taught apply to the shooter not their rifle. The goal is to learn and have fun.
In partnership with Project Mapleseed, the VFGPA is hosting a Mapleseed Event on Wednesday, October 6th 2021. Online pre-registration required. If the event is filled, an additional event will be held on Thursday, October 7th 2021.
