Young Shots Introduction Days
The BASC Young Shots Programme is aimed at youngsters between the ages of 8 and 18 years and introduces and teaches them how to shoot in a safe and responsible manner; and also allows them to try a range of other country sports and activities.
For those wishing to find out a little more about country sports and shooting in general, we run ‘Introductory Days’ throughout the region. These are intended as a taster day, where Young Shots have the opportunity of experiencing four or five different field sports/ rural based activities per event. All ‘Introductory Days’ will include clay pigeon and air rifle shooting.
Depending on age and experience, Young Shots can then book in for a ‘Progression Day’. These days are for Young Shots who want to develop their skills and knowledge of a particular discipline, either shotgun or air rifle shooting. During the course of the day Young Shots will receive a shooting lesson with a BASC Coach, as well as learning about gun safety, legislation and fieldcraft.
Following on from the Progression Day, there are opportunities for Young Shots to participate in the Safe Shot Award. Please can you insert link to BASC Shotgun Safe Shot Award page
These days are subject to the kind assistance of third parties, so will vary year on year; however activities can include the following:
- Wildfowling Days
- Driven Game Days
- Deer Management Days
- Conservation Days
Please note that when taking bookings for any event that includes live quarry, preference will always be given to those Young Shots that have completed a Progression Day within the relevant discipline.
