Shooting SASU

County Shooting Team

A SASU (Scout Active Support Unit) team has been set up to support and promote Shooting across the County.

The SASU’s Mandate is:

  • To promote Shooting within Scouting throughout the County
  • To provide advice to anyone in the County (be that adults seeking to take young people shooting, adults seeking to advance their own coaching skills, young people seeking to take part in shooting)
  • To develop the spread of shooting as a Scout activity across the County by providing training to adults so they can gain the basic NSRA YPS (National Small-bore Rifle Association Youth Proficiency Scheme) Instructor qualification
  • To run District and County shooting activities, probably by co-opting or delegating to other qualified people
  • To create a development programme for the young people so they can, if they wish, progress their shooting skills within the Scout organisation
  • To manage and train a County squad of young people to take part in inter-county competitions
  • To maintain a contact list of all people in the County qualified to provide shooting to the young people

The team has already started by a) creating a competition specifically for Explorers and adults, b) acquiring additional equipment so that young people can progress, c) scheduling a number of training courses for Leaders, d) building a contact list of qualified people and e) continuing to train a County squad for inter-county competitions.
