Youth Proficiency Scheme (YPS) Tutor Courses: supervision of air-rifle target shooting book onto available courses

Hampshire Scouts Rifle Club is organising a number of National Small-bore Rifle Association (NSRA) Youth Proficiency Scheme (YPS) Tutor’s Diploma courses from now until late Spring 2022 – the basic qualification required for the supervision of target shooting with airguns as a Scouting / Youth Activity.

12 places will be available on each of these popular weekend 09:00 – 17:00 courses (booked on a first come first served / payment received basis) with dated being:

  • 29-30 January in Fleet – one place available
  • 19-20 February in Whitchurch – one place available
  • 09-10 April in Whitchurch – two places available
  • JUST ADDED on 22-December for places on the 11-12 June course in Fleet

Cost is £90 per head per course for Scouters and covers everything needed to equip candidates to run Scouting ‘have-a-go’ sessions in air rifle shooting and support young people shooting over a longer period.  Refreshments are provided and accommodation / camping locally can be arranged.

Attending candidates must be 18 years+.

The courses will be delivered in compliance with any Covid restrictions, adhering to ‘safe practices’ and we’d also currently appreciate a Lateral Flow test being done on the day, before entering the classroom.

All enquiries to Dougal_DLM@yahoo.co.uk  HSRC will also be offering other shooting qualification courses in 2022 and can also support training for Activity Centre staff and candidates from outside of Scouting, so please again contact Douglas Millard for information and to express interest.
