Your County Needs You 1

The association currently has various vacant positions that require volunteers:

LWSR and Benchrest Secretary/s:                           

To enable us to run both LWSR and Benchrest competition leagues, we need a Secretary to run either or both disciplines. The post/s would require the Secretary to set up and run both Winter & Summer local Team & Individual leagues, organise an annual County Championship, either postal or shoulder to shoulder, and select county teams to participate in National competitions. 

Unfortunately, without any volunteer/s the association will not be able to run any competitions in these disciplines.

County Coaches: 

Coaches are sort to support shooters in Essex in all disciplines we represent and run competitions for. 

The association will help individuals gain the County Coach qualification, once they have obtained the qualifications to progress to county level, providing a commitment is given to support shooters around the county.

Anyone wishing to take up either of the positions above or seek more information, please use Contact Us form.
