all about


The AHSRA offers Shooting at some regular season rodeos as well as our Provincial Finals. This shooting competition offers the top 4 qualifiers from the Junior High and High School Divisions, spots on the National Team. This event is an optional event and doesn’t count for the Alberta High School Rodeo High Point, but allows those with an interest in shooting to be a part of the AHSRA. There are multiple opportunities to qualify for prizes and scholarships through your participation in this event. 



All shooters must purchase a student membership from the Canadian Coalition for Firearms Rights (CCFR). 

All shooters will also need the following equipment to enter the shooting competition: 

  • Safety glasses and ear protection  
  • .22 caliber rimfire rifle. .22 short, .22 caliber long or long rifle with iron sights or scope up to 10 power.  If you have a scope over 10 power you will be required to adjust it to a setting of 10 or lower.
  • Target ammunition. A minimum of 50 rounds will be needed. No hollow point ammunition is allowed.
  • Shooting mat. If you do not have one a yoga mat will be sufficient. 



The competition will consist of shooting from 3 positions. Prone, kneeling and standing. One target for each position.  

The A-23/5 target has one “sighter” and 4 bullseye. You will be allowed to shoot 5 rounds from the  prone position into the sighter prior to the competition starting. 

Once the competition starts you will shoot 3 rounds into each of the 4 bullseye for a total of 12 shots per position. So a total of 41 rounds will be required for one competition.
