DZ coaches are Dianne Zemanak and Ray Imel. Floyd Dryden coaches are Josh Yerkes and Amalie Fischer.

Students are taught firearms safety, responsibility and marksmanship as a sport after school, with an eye on competition with other schools.

Floyd Dryden has been practicing in the FD commons and the Dzantik’i Heeni team has been practicing at the Hunter Education Center at Montana Creek.

Middle school principals Tom Milliron and Molly Yerkes supported the project and Bruce Bowler provided the coaches with NRA certified training for basic rifle instruction.

The Territorial Sportsman and Juneau Shooting Sports Association also provided essential assistance. The rifles used are Co2 powered pellet guns similar to those used in higher-level competitions.
