The State Coaching Council provides training and accreditation of coaches. The Council can also arrange for a specialist coach to visit a club and conduct a coaching session. Clubs need only to contact the Coaching Director (see Committee contact details).

Coaching of the State Team Training Squad takes place behind the scenes to maintain and lift the competitiveness of the Western Australian team.

Junior Development

The State Team Training Squad Management organises regular shoots and training camps to develop the standard of junior shooting. A Junior Squad is selected each year to compete in the National Championships alongside the senior team.

State Team

Club shooters who are performing well may be invited to join the State Team Training Squad. Alternatively a club may nominate a shooter for selection to the Squad. The Squad consists of both junior and senior members. The Squad receives elite coaching and the opportunity to share skills at a number of weekend development sessions throughout the year.
