Recreational Target Shooting Program (RTS)

This program seeks to help shooters get better. With clear, straightforward rules, shooters take aim at defined goals. Results are tracked and improvements rewarded. Success is achieved progressively as shooters advance through the levels. And as skills get honed, greater enjoyment is unlocked. Shooters are encouraged to try the following disciplines:

  • Air Rifle or Air Pistol
  • Centerfire Rifle or Pistol
  • Smallbore Rifle or Pistol
  • Shotgun

  • What’s new?

    • The Shooting Federation of Canada has developed a RTS Leaderboard for pistol, rifle and shotgun to display regional, provincial and national rankings.
    • Participants can use these sheets to check their results and see which levels have been reached.
    • The RTS Leaderboard will also allow you to view other participants' scores and levels.
    • To the Club Program Director, it is a useful tool that automatically tracks which level a participant has attained.
    • To make the program available to as many shooters as possible, the RTS program now includes Air Rifle, Air Pistol and Shotgun.

    How does the program work?

    Start small and then get others involved

    • Get together two or more people and form your own RTS club
    • Elect one member of your club as Program Director. They will act as the liason between your club and the SFC.
    • It is their responsibility to enter new participants and the update results in the RTS leaderbord sheets.
    • The Club Program Director fills in and submits the Club Registration Form (the club Registration Form can be printed and mailed directly to SFC).
    • After the registration form has been recieved, access to the RTS Leaderbord sheet will be granted to the Club Program Director.
    • It is important that the club orders the appropriate SFC approved targets and completes the Badge Order Form to receive the badges.
    • Your badges will only be sent out after payment has been recieved.
    • Please review the RTS Program Rules and adhere to the regulations.
    • The Club Program Director will update the appropriate RTS Leaderboard spreadsheet and will award the badge levels to the participants as they advance.
    • We suggest that each club schedule a regular meeting (virtual or "in person") with all participants of the same club.
    • If you aren't a member of a club or haven't yet found others who share your shooting enthusiasm, you can always act as your own Program Director, and follow the appropriate steps.
    • The SFC values integrity, fair play and good sportmanship.
    • The SFC has confidence that participants will honor the rules and show courtesy, respect and fairness towards their competitors and the sport of shooting.
    • Remember to always shoot safely and have fun!
