    Default Schools Sport Shooting 2015

    The new shooting year is starting.

    We lost athlete's (they left school) - Hopefully they can be accommodated by other shooting federations!!!
    We gain new athlete's - The young ones that start to shoot in 2015 -WELCOME guys & gals home you enjoy it tremendously

    SANSSU (South African National Schools Shooting Union) the regulatory body for sport shooting at schools level is operational and going strong

    If you need any information have a look at (http://www.flexiweb.za.net/sanssu/Home.aspx). You should be able to contact your local provincial management for further info.

    If you cannot find any information, contact me via PM and I will direct you to the correct person.

    Perhaps it would be a good idea to organise an 'intro' to the school leavers, in the disciplines of NFT/HFT and FT - before they 'disappear' from the shooting environment?

    I am sure that this sort of organised event can be arranged.

    Another thing...

    What is the status of the indoor 50m range. I'd be keen to come and do some testing at some stage. Could even do a demo with knock-down targets?

    Yes there is, Andre.

    The problem is that the kids get involved with 'life'.

    'Precision' shooting requires hours and hours of dedicated practice... and then a few hours more, to perform at any reasonable level. Far more than FT or SFT/HFT requires. Hence, the top performers either continue (in the very small minority) or stop shooting altogether.


    If SAFTAA can expose them to their disciplines - near the 'end' of their school shooting careers, what a winner!

    Think of FUN events. The kids like it

    The indoor range is fully operational, just speak to me as we do not have power yet and the generator cost an arm and a leg to run.
    So I try to make it worthwhile operationally, I am trying to keep Thursday nights open as "public" time... (e.g. some people can shoot 10m on runners and others 40m )

    Range-fee of R50 per person per day for NON-Club members

    Hopefully that will change in 2015, if we get permanent power (with loadshedding) the operational cost will go down and the range can be more available
