The Association has five categories of affiliation for organisations, the full details of which are set out in NSRA Rules and Regulations, Rule 2. Broadly they are:
Category A - Clubs. A club is a shooting organisation which principally uses not more than two ranges (one indoors, one outdoors) for its home matches and practice for each of the disciplines it follows (rifle, pistol, airgun, etc).
Category B - Local Associations and Leagues. An organisation which provides a local league or other competitions for clubs located within a predetermined area.
Category C - County Associations.
Category D - Other Shooting Organisations. Shooting organisations not covered by the previous three categories, such as Home Country Unions or national groups working only within a specialist area.
Category E - Other Organisations. Organisations falling outside the previous four categories, such as commercial enterprises.
The basic affiliation fees for 2018 will appear here soon:
The 2018 Club Affiliation forms will be available soon
