I hope you all enjoyed a lovely Christmas and New Years with your loved ones and the year 2017 is off to a great start for each of you so far.
Here at Shooting Australia we have hit the ground running as February plays host to the inaugural event of the newly launched SA Performance Series, Sydney Cup 1 at SISC which also doubles as the first Commonwealth Games selection event for Shotgun and the 2016 SA Awards of Excellence at Rooty Hill RSL.
Shooting Australia Awards of Excellence
Shooting Australia Performance Series
If you are not already involved and are interested at officiating at any of these events please contact the event hosts directly. Expressions of Interest for the SA Open and SA Junior Championships will be sought by Shooting Australia later in the year.
ISSF Judge and License Renewals
All ISSF Judge and Licence renewals submitted to Shooting Australia at the end of 2016 have been processed through ISSF Headquarter in Munich and are on their way to the Shooting Australia office.
Further information regarding the introduction of the Shooting Australia certificate of currency process including required assessments will be forwarded to individuals’ once this process has been finalised.
Shooting Australia Officials Development Workshop
Thanks to the alignment of the SA Officials Development plan and the SA Performance series, SA will host an important workshop at SISC prior to Sydney Cup 1 for invited officials who have been identified as mentors and educators in their respective states across all disciplines.
Mr Peter Underhill, Technical Delegate for the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games will be attending to present his expectations of the ITO, NTO and SSV’s which will assist with the preparation over the next 18 months for both the 2018 ISSF Junior World Cup event in Sydney and 2018 Commonwealth Games at Belmont. He will then stay on to observe the first two days of competition and give some invaluable feedback on key areas of our officiating and presentation of our domestic events.
2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games ITO, NTO and SSV Nominations
