SSSChamps Intro

 

 

The National Secondary Schools' Shooting Championship - better known as The NZ Triple S Champs - is New Zealand's newest shooting competition and is now in its 14th year. It is open to all NZ secondary school students. This is aimed at giving secondary school shooters the chance to compete nationally for both individual and team glory and recognition.

 

Is this a team or an individual thing?

Both! Every shooter enters an individual category first. Then, if 4 or 5 individual shooters at a school want to, they can put a team together. Schools can enter as many teams as they wish (of course, one shooter can only shoot for one team!).

What are the categories?

Master Grade

  • A Grade
  • B Grade
  • C Grade
  • D Grade
  • Ungraded

Teams can be made up of shooters from any grades (including ungraded). The winning teams will be the one with the highest scores.

How much does it cost?

There is just one $10 fee per shooter for entry in all 3 sections. 

What are the sections?

Overall Individual, Graded and Teams.

When do entries need to be in by?

Your entries and payments need to be in by Sunday 19th May 2024.  You can download the entry form here: 2024 SSS Champs Entry Form (right-click and download)
