Shooting is very popular with those who have not taken to team sports (and most of those who have!) and is very accessible to those with a disability. It requires mental rather than physical strength, and teaches self-discipline and perseverance.
We follow the National Smallbore Rifle Association syllabuses which are accepted for the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards under the 'Skills' heading.
Air guns, targets and pellets are supplied. There are no additional costs other than external competition fees.
