Oceania Shooting Federation
 


 

Plans for the 2017 Oceania / CSFC / YOG event are now well underway.

Team members will have been receiving regular emails from Gavin Paton at NZSF.  When these arrive it is important to read them carefully and make sure all instructions are followed.    As the emails are sent a copy will be posted here too, so they can be easily found and referred to.

The NZSF team includes Pistol and Shotgun shooters as well as our TSNZ shooters, so co-ordinating the team can be a difficult task.  Let's have OUR shooters being the ones who always meet the deadlines!

The Oceania Shooting Federation promotes and guides the sound development of shooting sport within the Oceania area and strenghtens the bonds of friendship between the shooting organisations, irrespective of political, racial, physical and religious differences.

The Oceania Shooting Federation is the continental member of the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF).  

Member countries are New Zealand, Australia, Fiji, Niue, Papua New Guinea, Samoa and Tuvalu, with Associate members New Caledonia, Norfolk Island and French Polynesia.

TSNZ shooters can compete as NZ representatives in the Oceania Championships which are held every 2 years.

 

 

The next Oceania Championship is to be held in 2017,
and the selection period for this has now closed.


Oceania 2017 is being held in conjunction with the Commonwealth Shooting Federation Champs  which is the trial event for the Commonwealth Games to be held there the following year.  

The NZSF Oceania 2017 document  outlines how selection is made. Events are 50m Prone, 3P and 10m Air Rifle, and competitors are selected from National Squad Ranking Lists, and in some cases shooters must also shoot an "MQS", or Minimum Qualifying Score to be eligible.  The Oceania Ranking List covered the selection period 1 August 2016 - 31 March 2017.

The Ranking Lists are made up of scores shot at particular matches in the TSNZ Calendar, these are called Designated Matches and are agreed in advance of the ranking period so all shooters will know which matches can add to their ranking.  The Designated Matches are listed on the TSNZ Outdoor 10 Year Plan and the 2016-17 Outdoor/Air/3P Plan.
