The Central Virginia Region is one of thirteen regions that comprises the North-South Skirmish Association. The N-SSA is dedicated to preserving the history of the American Civil War by shooting original and direct reproduction firearms and artillery of the period. Firing is done at local skirmishes, which have competitive live firing of muskets, carbines, revolvers, breechloading rifles, smoothbores and artillery. Skirmishes, in our case, would be defined as the live firing of period firearms in competition. The North-South Skirmish Association as a whole is around 4,000 members, from across the country. Our region, the Central Virginia, is predominately based in Virginia and her surrounding states. We have 13 teams in our region and approximately 300 members shooting on those teams.

Most of our skirmishes are held at the N-SSA home range of Ft. Shenandoah. The Fort is approximately 700 acres located just north of Winchester, Virginia. Our region also attends many skirmishes at the Tidewater Regional range in Capron, Virginia and we are working diligently on a potential new range in the Fredericksburg, Virginia area.

Each and every team in this region has the typical "down-home" gracious southern attitude, and would be more than willing to lend their knowledge, experience and some wisdom to any potential new recruit. If you have any interest in our unique sport, or just questions regarding black powder shooting sport in general, please don't hesitate to contact any one listed on our contacts page.
