A Ladyseed is an Appleseed designed specifically for ladies. The women who attend a Ladyseed event will learn much more than how to fire a rifle, they will also learn American heritage and the history of how women actively aided in the fight on April 19, 1775. Many ladies walk away from an Appleseed event with a renewed sense of their country and of themselves. For many women a rifle range is unfamilar territory and can seem daunting, but the instruction at a Ladyseed event creates a comfortable learning environment. Whether you've never fired a rifle before or you're already a competitive shooter, most women walk away glad that they attended and ready to sign up for the next Appleseed event!
History is made by Women.
Those with strength,
skill, and courage who chose a better future for
themselves and their descendants. The Appleseed
Project awakens their past to
share their stories in order to
bring about our better future.
Two days filled with women's
heritage, rifle instruction, and
friendship await you!
This is your heritage...
The core of The Appleseed Project is heritage.
The Appleseed Program is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the teaching of
American heritage, history, and traditional
marksmanship skills. Our instructor teams
travel the country educating everyone about
the difficult choices and heroic actions that our
great founders made on behalf of us, their
Our heritage program brings the first two days
of the Revolutionary War vividly into the
modern day with the kind of care and immediacy
that is absent from schooling today.
Appleseed is dedicated to bringing that day,
those persons, and their stories to each and every
American. They have much to teach us, and we
have much to learn from them. These are our
stories and in them is our hope for the future.
...this is your rifle...
The way that we bring this history to life is
through marksmanship instruction. Our
rigorous two day program teaches all of the
American marksmanship skills which were once
common knowledge. Sling use, steps to firing the shot, body positions and control are all
covered. Each skill is a part of the puzzle that
when put together create success.
Shooters of all skill levels are successful with our
program. Often it is the new woman shooter
that outclasses the macho know it all! Women
teaching women. Women sharing with women. The all women shoot provides an even greater
opportunity for that success.
While Appleseed tries to staff each Ladyseed with only lady instructors that is not always possible at some locations. Occasionally we will have male instructors if we are unable to obtain enough lady instructors. We do strive however to staff our Ladyseed events with only lady instructors.
All who come, learn. So will you.
...and these are your friends.
The ﬁnal success of the program is made in
friendships and futures. New friends await you
in history and even more friends are awaiting
you around the campﬁre after the instruction
No one who comes to an Appleseed leaves the
same. The skills, heritage, and friendships are all
inspirational and life changing.
