Buffalo Youth Shooting Sports (BYSS) is a volunteer parent run shooting safety organization. BYSS Members are adults who have paid dues according to the BYSS By-Laws with the purpose of fulfilling the goals outlines below.

BYSS is for the shooter, their family and friends.  We need everyone to be involved to make it more fun and successful. The Buffalo Youth Shooting Sports Shooting Education class is now being sponsored for the 40th consecutive year.   

Goals:  To educate, instill the higher regard for the firearm safety and sportsmanship, and prepare girls and boys ages  8 -15 for gun safety exams and competitive 5 meter BB Gun Matches.

Program fees are $30 for each participant ($100 max per family) and must be paid while registering before or on the evening of the first class. The first class begins on January 11th at 5:30pm. Parent Guardian Forms must also be filled out at registration.

Safety classes for new and returning participants will begin at 6:30pm.


Class sessions will continue to meet each Monday and Thursday after that. The first 4 sessions are gun safety training classes only. Participants must attend all 4 sessions to earn a Safety Certificate.  No guns should be brought to class. Monday/Thursday shooting practice begins the 5th session and continues for 3 months. 


Thursday February 8th is our first night to start BB Gun competition practice shooting. 
All Weekly (Monday or Thursday) Practices:  Rockford Township Hall, just off of Hwy 55 on Co. Rd. 14

(3039 Dague Ave. SE, Buffalo MN)

 We start shooting at 6:30pm. Please arrive by 6:10pm to help set up. We will aim to be done by 8:30pm followed by a team effort pick up so we can all leave at a decent time. Thank you and we are looking forward to this great year.
