Scottish Target Shooting (STS), in partnership with British Shooting, are delighted to announce an additional qualifying event to the Schools Pistol Championships - in Scotland. The event will be held at the Bo’ness Recreation Centre on Wednesday 25th October and is hosted by STS.

Along with the other four events in the Championships, the Scotland event will qualify individual athletes and teams in the Junior, Intermediate and Senior categories for the National Final. 

All those participating in the Championships will be representing their school/college and those who are home schooled will also be welcomed.

Anyone between the school ages of P7 – S6 (11-18 years old) are welcome to enter any of the qualifying events.

We welcome you to enter and reassure you that you’ll be guided along the process by our expert delivery teams, to ensure you have a fun and enjoyable experience.

STS Chief Operating Officer, Oliver Barsby, said: “Scottish Target Shooting (STS) is delighted to partner with British Shooting to bring a regional qualifier of the British Schools Pistol Competition to Scotland. 

"This is a fantastic opportunity to connect with schools in Scotland and get more young people engaged in the sport, with the added incentive for successful shooters to go on and represent Scotland at the finals. 

"STS believes this is a fantastic move by British Shooting in hosting one of its qualifying events in Scotland so the British Shooting name can be used to inspire Scottish residents by bringing an event to their doorsteps. This has been made possible through the formation of STS and the strength of the partnership with British Shooting and we hope this will be the first of many events we can bring to Scotland.”
