Target Rifle Victoria is the governing body for small-bore and air rifle shooting in Victoria. If you have never tried out the sport we encourage you to find out more about what the sport can offer you - friendship, a chance to compete equally, and the opportunity to participate in events across the state.
We are affiliated with our national body, Target Rifle Australia, and you can therefore compete at events interstate. For those with even more ambition, our affiliation through the Australian International Shooting Limited provides a pathway to the Olympic and Commonwealth Games.
Recently TRV launched a new scheme aimed at attracting more female participation within our organisation: The Commonwealth Ladies Pennant Team.
VicHealth has just released a new grant aimed at assisting clubs with improving female participation.. The new TRV Commonwealth Ladies Pennant Team is a valid new team that would comply with the terms of this new grant.
Clubs could apply for things such as:
You will not be able to apply for rifles or ammunition.
So its worth your club getting involved, enter a Ladies team and apply for the new grant. It closes 23rd of September.
This pennant is named in honour of The Commonwealth Ladies Rifle Club Formed in Feb 1901 in Melbourne and was the first Ladies only club in rifle shooting in the commonwealth. More details of this ground breaking club to become known in the next TRV newsletter.
To help support our clubs and increase membership TRV are introducing a pennant for women, open to existing members as well as prospective new female shooters.
We are encouraging existing club members to rally around and get wives, girlfriends, workmates and anyone you know to come and try our sport and take part in this competition.
Target Rifle Victoria and Victorian Amateur Pistol Association will host the 2016 Junior Championships at the Melbourne International Shooting Club. There will be a range or disciplines open to Junior Competitors and plenty of faces to meet.
