The various shooting disciplines are a popular sport where age, gender or health do not prevent participation. Competitions range from informal local events to provincial, territorial or national championships and upwards to the international and Olympic level. The Whitehorse Rifle & Pistol Club is a long standing, non-profit organization which has been vital to the promotion of the shooting sports in the Yukon. In addition to providing a suitable venue for our Yukon shooters to practice their discipline, the WRPC has also hosted national and international championship events. The WRPC also supports local enforcement agencies with scheduled access to the shooting range.
