Organisational Structure - Small Bore and Air-Rifle shooting
Small bore Rifle and Air Rifle are the only rifle disciplines shot at the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The world bodies controlling these disciplines are the International Shooting Sport Federation (I.S.S.F.), the International Paralympic Committee (I.P.C.) and the World Rimfire and Airgun Benchrest Federation (WR.A.B.F.).
Each affiliated country has a National Federation and states or provinces have Associations which govern clubs within them. In Australia, the overall controlling body is Shooting Australia.
Shooting Australia is responsible for selection of Australian Teams to contest international events such as the Olympic and Commonwealth Games, World Championships and World Cup events as well as the Oceania Continental Championships.
The National Federation here is Target Rifle Australia Ltd., (T.R.A.) www.tra.org.au which has 6 State Member Bodies:
- New South Wales Small bore and Air Rifle Association Inc. (N.S.W.S.A.R.A.I) http://www.nswsarai.com.au

These State Member Bodies are underpinned by each of their affiliated clubs.
No matter if your club is a strictly I.S.S.F. Club, Bench Rest or a Prone Silhouette Club, the club you have just joined provides you with the opportunity to participate in the events of your choice.
Club officials and other club members will be able to assist you with all aspects of small bore shooting such as coaching, equipment, ammunition, opportunities etc.
