A chance to visit

This is not an exhaustive list and your Council is continually looking into progressive development opportunities, taking into account current Covid 19 restrictions.

In addition to developing Coaches and Instructors, the Institute contributes on a regular basis to the debate and lobbying of on-going issues within the Industry. This is primarily achieved as a member of the British Shooting Sports Council (BSSC) and we are represented directly by one of our Council Members, currently Dr Malcolm Plant.
