How To Start Up A Club

HOW TO START UP A CLUB

Welcome to the Australian Clay Target Association information page on starting a new club.

 

Requirements

Firstly you will require a recommendation from your zone and then your state. If you contact your State administrator they will be able to put you in contact with the zone. A letter will need to be sent to the ACTA from the State recommending your affiliation and we will then commence affiliation with the ACTA. There is an annual affiliation fee.

If you have not yet contacted the Firearms Registry in your state regarding regulations we recommend you start with them. To visit the Firearms Registry website in your respective State; see the links below in red:

New South Wales

Northern Territory 

Queensland

South Australia

Tasmania

Victoria

Western Australia

 

A separate application form is required for a club if they wish to acquire guns for use by club members. Application is to be made by the club secretary or a nominated club member as the licence holder.

Firearms Safety Training Instuctor Approval

This will allow persons, on behalf of an approved club, association or organization, to conduct firearms safety training for longarms in accordance with an approved firearms safety training course. Applicants must hold a current (longarm) firearms licence and have held it for a minimum of three years.

Form P644 - application for firearms safety training instructor (longarms).

Form P650 - this form must be completed by all unlicenced applicants before they can possess and use a firearm in accordance with the NSW Firearms Act 1996. Return the form to the club or range official or the instructor upon completion.

We are able to supply layouts/plans for trap and skeet including skeet and trap house dimensions. The current ACTA Rules are available online.

Any further enquiries please contact the Australian Clay Target Association on 02 6938 2121.
