The National Scout Rifle Squad

The National Scout Rifle Squad has the same purpose as Scouting generally: the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potentials. The Rifle squad aims to develop its members’ potentials in the various roles of the sport of target shooting, as athletes, as instructors and as team members. It was formed in 2000, initially to compete against teams from the Cadet Forces.

The Scout Squad provides a “bridge” from the world of Scout target shooting into the wider target-shooting world, mainly by preparing people for membership of the Great Britain Youth Development squads and to take part in Junior International competitions. It is also the group from which teams are picked to represent British Scouting in shooting competitions as opportunity arises. Although called a “Rifle Squad”, it covers both rifle and pistol shooting.

The squad operates through Hampshire Scout Rifle Club, as its host Home Office approved rifle club and all members are encouraged to shoot the small-bore rifle disciplines as well as air rifle and air pistol.

The squad's main entry routes are via The National Scout Rifle Championships and The Scout Inter-County Airgun Competition
