 Target Shooting is a sport that requires concentration, patience and focus, and taking part in shooting can help Secondary School pupils gain these skills for life.  This is also a sport where a typically "non-sporty" student can become a New Zealand representative - something of which both they and their school can be justifiably proud.


TSNZ Challenge Postal Competition

Many students gain a good introduction to shooting through the Secondary School Postal Shoot which is held each year.  This postal event is open to every Secondary School in New Zealand.   Schools liaise with local TSNZ clubs who can provide equipment and coaching, so even schools with no staff who are involved in shooting can take part.

Over 1,000 school pupils take part in this competition every year, gaining valuable practical knowledge of firearms safety and handling, and experiencing the thrill of target shooting as a sport.   TSNZ then provide labelled targets which are shot at your own range and scores returned by 31st August.  Students do not need to be TSNZ members to compete in this match, however many go on to join Clubs and continue their shooting past the school programme.

The TSNZ Challenge Secondary School competition provides many of our next generation of target shooters.

Inter Secondary-Schools Inter-Island Match - the "Nationals"

This match was contested for the first time in 2002. Such was its success that it is now an annual event competed alternately in the South Island at Blenheim or Christchurch and in the North Island at Wellington or Palmerston North. It is held generally in the first or middle weekend of the school holidays at the end of Term 3 and is a full weekend event.  All Secondary schools are entitled to send one team of three shooters.

The pupils shoot an Inter School Match, then a North and South Island Team is selected and they compete against each other. From the top scores a New Zealand Team is selected which will shoot against a British Schools team as a postal event.  This match identifies the top Schools shooters in NZ, and every school should be very proud of their students representing their country in this way.

Secondary School students are also able to enter other local and postal competitions such as the Triple S Postal, and local school competitions in various regions around NZ.
