Update on plans - GB Rifle Team to South Africa 2017

Further to my initial announcement plans are progressing for the training programme prior to the tour in 2017, and I would like to inform prospective applicants of these. I am aware of the time constraints we all face with work and family commitments and hope by adding some detail this will be helpful.

The intention is for us to start training with a weekend next April which will be in the format of a seminar on various aspects of high performance and team shooting. Range training will then take place over a weekend in late June 2016 to coincide with the training weekend for the GB team to Canada, against whom there will be a match. The final session in 2016 will focus on indoor training over a weekend in November. There are then likely to be 2-3 training weekends in early 2017, format as yet to be decided.

The training weekends in April and June next year will be co-ordinated, as far as possible, with the GB Canada team schedule, to enable anyone considering applying to both teams to do so with minimal extra time commitment prior to the Canada tour.

The South African championships are likely to be held from 24th March to 1st April 2017, and so the tour dates would be Saturday 18th March to Sunday 2nd April 2017. These dates are provisional at the moment, and will hopefully be confirmed by SABU in due course.

Although the training will be dedicated to the team, we hope to give a number of applicants the opportunity to participate in some aspects of the training programme, to further their personal development and for the benefit of future teams.

The closing date for applications is 14th September this year. However if any prospective applicants are unsure of their availability by that date they may still be considered for selection as long as I receive an indication from them prior to the end of August. I will then be sending out application forms, for completion and returning to me by 30th September. The team will then be selected and announced by mid October.
