Clay Target Shooting

Clay Target Shooting Program

2020 CTS Program

Gippsland Sports Academy will again run its Junior Development Program in 2020 with Coaches Andrew Brady in the role of Trap coach and Keith Ferguson an internationally successful skeet shooter for the Skeet/Sporting Coach role.

Students offered a place in the squad will get the opportunity to attend 4 coaching days in 2020, and 2 non-shooting days.

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.
