Shooting

Become a rifle marksman using training, discipline and control

All air cadet target shooting takes place in controlled conditions and is supervised by qualified adult staff.

Cadets take part in the sport of Target Shooting as a standard part of their training.  Competitions allow teams to show their prowess, while the Marksman Award Scheme helps to develop the individual.

Gaining a marksman award is not an easy task. It takes commitment and discipline, which is exactly why we do it!

Cadets have the opportunity to train on and fire several different rifles at distances from 5 to 500 meters.  The type of shooting also varies with challenges from applying rounds to the center of the target to just hitting it as quickly as possible or even hitting a moving target!
