WOMEN ON TARGET
14-16 APRIL 2023
Women on Target (WoT) is a NSW Government funded initiative that invites women aged 16-24 from Regional NSW to learn rifle shooting at our Malabar Range.
The grant is part of the Her Sport Her Way campaign, which supports projects that value and recognise women in sport while fostering a welcoming and inclusive culture.
The NSW Rifle Association is seeking expressions of interest for our inaugural Women on Target event this April at the Anzac Rifle Range in Malabar, Sydney.
Aimed at introducing women in regional NSW aged 16-24 to the sport of rifle shooting, you’ll not only develop marksmanship skills but leadership and presentation skills too, which you can share when you return home.
Over three days, you’ll be divided into teams of five and will rotate through disciplines and training within your group.
You’ll have the opportunity to:
- trial all disciplines of rifle shooting to find out where your interest lies - Service Rifle, Precision Service Rifles, Sporter/Hunter, Biathlon, F-Open, F Class, Field Target Rifle and Target Rifle.
- meet with some of our international individual and team representatives
- work with a team of coaches and mentors who’ll guide you through developing these new skills
- participate in a coached team shoot on the final day for some fun competition!
At the end of your time with us, we’ll introduce you to the most relevant NSWRA member club so you can pursue your area of interest. You’ll also leave with your firearms safety training certification and a sense of personal achievement.
About the Event
You'll make your way to the beautiful Anzac Rifle Range where you stay for 3 days, 2 nights. Arriving on 13th April between 3-5pm, you'll be greeted with a welcome pack by our Supervisors and Mentors.
You'll stay in bunk style accommodation on the 14th and 15th, departing for home on the 16th.
All your meals - breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. Each day and evening, we will have an action packed program of shooting and leadership activities.
This event is fully supervised by qualified and experienced NSWRA personnel, who have all the appropriate checks to ensure your safety during your time on the range.
