It’s back and it’s more inclusive than ever before! Southdown Shooting School widens net for Talent Pool competition

Have you got the grit and determination needed to compete on a national stage?

Southdown Shooting School in West Sussex is now looking for its next novice clay shooter to mentor as part of its hugely popular Talent Pool competition.

Now in its third year, organisers have widened the net to include more shooters, the age limit has been lowered from 16- to 14-years old and the grading for existing shooters has changed from CPSA C class to now include B class shooters too. However entrants do not have to be a CPSA member at all to enter.

Talent Pool is designed to find an ambitious clay shooter to be trained to compete in the British Open Sporting Championship in 2019. The glittering year-long prize fund, which is worth more than £15,000, includes the loan of a brand new Zoli Z-Sport shotgun, 12 one-to-one professional coaching sessions, membership at Southdown Shooting School, 7,500 NSI cartridges, all entry fees, Clay Pigeon Shooting Association (CPSA) membership and branded clothing. Plus the winner will be personally mentored by Southdown’s head coach, Simon Arbuckle.

Interviews will be held on Saturday 1 September and Saturday 8 September. Previous applicants can reapply. Deadline for entries is Thursday 6 September.

Previous applicants can reapply.
