The Manitoba Provincial Rifle Association Inc. (MPRA) is the governing body for target rifle shooting in Manitoba. The Association’s vision is to enhance the perception of shooting as a Sport by encouraging and supporting all athletes involved in shooting to achieve their maximum performance levels while promoting safe firearms handling.
The Prairie Open
The MPRA Novice program introduces participants to the sport of target shooting by providing a social-based, safe, positive and fun environment. The program runs one night a week from October to May of each year. We teach the principals of safe gun handling skills, and introduce future athletes to the sport of 10 meter Air Rifle (standing) and .22 long rifle (prone).
“Evolving Our Culture, Bettering Our Sport” is the mission of our Strategic Plan. By promoting fairness, excellence and development for all levels we are working to support our athletes, regardless of age, physical ability, or competition level. By striving to be accountable, athlete focused and a leader in the sport community we will work towards achieving our goals and benefiting our community.
