Urgent Notice to All Club Secretaries

Please be aware that unless you have correctly completed and returned your club re-affiliation paperwork for 2016, your club will not be insured. We are unable to make any exceptions to this ruling as our underwriters will not accept claims made if the correct paperwork has not been submitted and received at our NSRA offices.

Please note that if you have already submitted your renewal paperwork, your club will be covered by our insurance, providing this is complete and correct. Any slight delay you may experience in receiving confirmation of your renewal is due to the Christmas / New Year break and the resulting volume of work we have to process.

To avoid unnecessary telephone calls and if you have yet to send in your renewal paperwork, please refer to the letter sent to you in October 2015, detailing the relevant forms for completion, the information required and the club renewal fee payable for 2016.

Thank you in advance for your co-operation and understanding during what is for us a very busy time of the year.

If you need another copy of the forms, all 2016 membership forms can be downloaded below:

The new IOC Agenda 2020 calls for a number criteria to be met by all sports on the Olympic programme with the most immediate being; gender equality, event based sports and sustainability.  This means that all events within each summer and winter sport are to be assessed on their own merits against a set criteria established by the IOC.  Therefore the ISSF is conducting a review of all its events with this criteria in mind ready for 2020, which means having any new events or changes in place in 2017.  Ready for the new 2020 Olympic cycle, post Rio and any further evaluation of current events by the IOC. 

Therefore all of the present 15 shooting medal events are under scrutiny.  50m Men's Rifle Prone is being looked at, along with all the others.  There is a suggestion that it may be replaced by a rifle mixed team event shot at 10m, but nothing is decided as yet and the ISSF remains open to all suggestions to improve the shooting discipline and programme for the Olympics. 

Obviously people will be rightly passionate and eager to preserve or retain and promote what they see best for the sport and this is to be encouraged.  As I say, the ISSF remains open to suggestions and ideas of how the sport should best meet the aspirations of Agenda 2020.  Therefore, I see no harm in the petition.  The ISSF is facing the challenge of meeting Agenda 2020 by seeking the views, opinions and suggestions of all interested parties involved in our Sport.

The initial goal of reaching 1,000 signatures has been achieved, but more support is needed. Please see the petition link below:-


British Shooting Sports Council will be representing the interests of our sport at governmental level to ensure our views are heard and the best interests of shooting are upheld.

Thank you for your support.
