Target Shooting SASU

The Shropshire Scouts Target Shooting Scout Active Support Unit can support you in delivering target shooting as a Scout activity in many ways:

 

Have a Go

You can book the team and the county kit for an evening’s have-a-go session of air rifle shooting in your own HQ.

We can of course tailor the session to meet your needs, including more advanced shooting.

The team will bring all the equipment needed for air rifle shooting.

Sport Crossbow is also available to HQs that can set up an archery range.

Shooting Competitions

The team delivers the Scout County’s target shooting competition at the West Midlands regional range in Aldersley, Wolverhampton. Congratulations to this year’s winning team
Whitchurch & Karakoram ESU of Tern Valley District.

The next event will be held over the weekend 11-12 February 2023. Note the date and start your Group training now!

The team will facilitate training and preparation of the Shropshire Scouts team for the Scout Inter-County Air Rifle and Air Pistol shooting competition In May and can support you in preparing to take a Group or Unit team to the National Scout Rifle Championships, to be held at Bisley in October

The team will facilitate training and preparation for other Scout target shooting competitions as they arise and can support you in preparing to take a Group or Unit team to the National Scout Rifle Championships, held at Bisley in October.
