The SSAA’s shooting competitions – commonly referred to as ‘disciplines’ – are the backbone of the Association. Our disciplines include the use of many different types of firearms such as shotguns, pistols, revolvers and rifles in rimfire, centrefire, air and black powder configurations, and a variety of targets, depending on the discipline and competition concerned. you can view all disciplines here.

The SSAA conducts shooting competitions in all Australian states and territories on a club, state and national level. In addition to this, the Association regularly hosts international shooting competitions in Australia and supports member participation in a large number of international competitions around the world.

The SSAA has developed rules for shooting events across a range of disciplines, including the SSAA Standard Rules and other guides. The SSAA Standard Rules are common to all SSAA disciplines and the current version of the SSAA Standard Rules has precedent over the relevant rules in a SSAA discipline rule book. All current SSAA rule books are available on their respective discipline pages and we encourage members and clubs to download, print and refer to these rule books as needed. The  Guide to Disciplines for Clubs and Competitors has been developed to assist clubs and competitors to have a better understanding of the disciplines and how they are managed.
