Mission Statement

FIRST CITY RIFLE CORPS WILL PRODUCE A COMPETENT SMALL-UNIT LEADER WHO IS CONFIDENT THAT HE CAN LEAD AND OVERCOME ALL OBSTACLES TO ACCOMPLISH THE MISSION

The FCRC is a program designed to instruct teens what it is like to pursue a military career.  Our program focuses on developing the personal skills necessary for young individuals to become exceptional small unit leaders. Affiliated with the Learning for Life program, we emphasize family and education before all else. We require all our members to maintain an excellent grade point average and to conduct themselves respectfully and professionally to all parents and teachers. All training given at FCRC adheres to current US Army doctrine and is instructed by former and current members of the military. In order to fully teach leadership building skills, our classes and exercises are run by senior members. The skills learned through our training gives an advantage when going through basic training in the military and life in the civilian world. In addition to joining the military, many of our former members have used their experiences to further their educations and have gone to study at universities such as USC and West Point Military Academy.

We are looking for young men and women between the ages 14 and 18 that can pass minimum physical fitness requirements and have the desire to experience life in the military.

First City Rifle Corps meets every Tuesday night from 1800 (6:00PM) to 2130 (9:30 PM) at the United States Army National Guard armory at 17330 Victory Blvd, Van Nuys CA 91406
