Shooting Club

The St Brendan's College Shooting Club commenced to meet the needs of boarders to continue their interested and activities from home.  It also provides day students with an opportunity to learn how to shoot safely in a controlled environment.

Aims:

The aims of the St. Brendan’s Shooting Club is to promote safe firearms handling and have fun. We also aim for each shooter to have a junior Shooters Licence for inclusion in their resume as this demonstrates a high level of skill and responsibility to potential employers.

Legal requirements:

The law concerning junior Shooting Licences has changed and as a result we must insist that your child apply for a Minors Shooting License as soon as is practical after they have completed their safety course. We will assist in this.
