Junior shooters

If you are a junior shooter, you should know that you are a vital member of Australia’s sport shooting fraternity. You are the future of our sport! If you are a family member or friend of a young person who has shown interest in the shooting sports, encourage and support them in their interest and help them be the best sportsperson they can be.

Shooting is one of the few sports that encourages and caters for the participation of the young and old, males and females, able-bodied and disabled. The SSAA and sport shooting in general is a family-orientated pastime and the whole family can enjoy a new-found group of friends, as well as many challenges, once the involvement begins.
