Both 12 and 20 bore shotguns will be available to all competitors at each stand.
Ear protectors will be provided on the day although pupils may wish to bring their own.
Competitors may also bring their own shotguns. Should competitors wish to use their own shotguns, the licence holder of the gun must be present at the championships throughout the day and they MUST carry their own shotgun certificate as by law they can not travel without it.
Additional equipment can be purchased on the day of the championships at the West London Shooting School store.
Each school can enter a maximum of 6 shooters per age group (U11, U12 & U13).
That means the maximum any school can enter is 18 from any one school.
Team scores will be based on the total number of competitors per age group.
Schools that enter less than 6 shooters (per age group) will NOT have their scores averaged, only totalled to reflect the team score.
Competitors will not be allowed to shoot twice in replacement of another absent competitor.
