Clay Target Shooting

Clay Target Shooting Program

2021 CTS Program

Gippsland Sports Academy will again run its Junior Development Program in 2021 with Andrew Brady as Head Coach.  This year we will also have guest coaches assisting with the program.  The program will have Trap, Skeet & Sporting disciplines

Students offered a place in the squad will get the opportunity to attend 4 coaching days in 2021 along with our Sport science program which covers Strength & Conditioning, Sport Psychology & Nutrition.

This program is a sub-elite level coaching program. It is intended to prepare students for events of a calibre to achieve results capable of national program selection. (eg ACTA Academy) As such there is a reasonable expectation that students (with parental assistance) will seek out and compete in events in their discipline at significant club events, interschool competition, some state carnivals (VIC/SA/NSW/TAS) and National Championships.
