Council for Cadet Rifle Shooting











Registered Charity No 284838

The Council for Cadet Rifle Shooting was formed in 1969 through the amalgamation of the former Imperial Cadet Association, the Public Schools Rifle Matches Association and the Committee responsible for the Inter Service Cadet Rifle Meeting. From its inception, it has been supported by the Ministry of Defence through the agencies of the Combined Cadet Force Association, the Sea Cadet Corps, the Army Cadet Force Association and the Air Training Corps. All the pre-Service organisations, the Council of RFCAs, the NRA, NSRA and BSSRA were founder members.

The Council act as a central body, which can speak with authority and give advice on cadet shooting matters. The Council's responsibilities, exercised with the approval of the Ministry of Defence, include liaison between other representative shooting authorities and units of the pre-Service cadet organisations and the dissemination of information on shooting matters affecting cadets. In addition to arranging and administering rifle meetings, postal shooting competitions, coaching courses and other shooting events for cadets at schools and units in the Commonwealth, the Council also provides administrative support for cadet teams selected to represent Great Britain in National and International Matches, both at home and overseas.

The Council shares a permanent Secretariat with The Territorial Army Rifle Association. It has a base in Derby Lodge at Bisley for information and administration throughout the year as well as canteen and recreation facilities for participants in the Schools and Inter-Services Cadet Meetings and Cadets attending National Meetings at Bisley. Members are kept up to date on shooting matters and results by means of circulars and information notices. The Council also publishes an Annual Year Book and calendar for the benefit of members. A copy of the AGM Minutes can be obtained from the Secretary on request.

Application for membership should be made to the Secretary, Derby Lodge, Bisley Camp, Brookwood, Woking, Surrey GU24 ONY.
