Athletes can now submit an expression of interest for membership to the British Shooting Pistol Pathway (Talent and Development Academies) for the season 2022-2023 (Olympic and Paralympic).
All athletes interested in being a member of the Pathway (including existing members) need to submit their interest by completing the form on the following link:
Once the form is complete, there are another two steps to complete. The British Shooting Pathway Co-ordinator, Lauren Freeman, will be in touch once you have successfully completed the form.
The important dates are as follows:
|Expression of Interest opens:
|Monday 15th August
|Expression of Interest closes:
|Monday 29th August
|New squads announced:
|Friday 30th September
British Shooting would like to get as wide an understanding of each athlete applying as possible, beyond just the score you can currently shoot. The process we will follow for this will be finalised once we understand the number of athletes expressing an interest but the process will likely include a discussion with a British Shooting member of staff or coach for us to gain a more detailed understanding of each person applying.
Membership of the Pathway does come at a financial cost to successful athletes. As a guide, for the previous season Jan – Sept 2022, the costs were £300 for both Talent and Development athletes. Fees have yet to be confirmed for the 2022-23 season. Please note this coming season will run from Oct 2022 – Sept 2023 - a full year to coincide with the shooting season and Pistol pathway.
We look forward to receiving your Expressions of Interest!
