We partner and support many organizations across Canada and work synergistically with them to multiply all efforts to develop the tools and skills of target shooters, coaches and officials across the country. We also have other like minded sports that we do not directly represent but are a part of target shooting disciplines. We will work in harmony with these like minded organizations to contribute to a healthy base of target shooting athletes that may choose to enter the Olympic and major games target shooting athlete pool.  All target shooting sports provide opportunity for the “Sport for Life” component for our athletes, officials and coaches.
