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).
You must provide proof of membership when you enter. Email a copy of your membership to email@example.com.
All shooters will also need the following equipment to enter the shooting competition:
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.
At the NHSRA Finals, there is also an added component of Trap shooting or Skeet shooting. These options are not yet available in the AHSRA but we are working towards including them.
These are the basics of what is needed, more detailed information will follow. Please refer to the following documents for specifics regarding shooting:
If you have any questions please reach out to your shooting director.
