The popular event is set to take place again after a two year break

Last year, the keenly anticipated British Schools and Young Shots (BSYS) competition had to be postponed due to Covid.

However we are delighted to announce that it will be taking place this year at Orston Shooting Ground in Nottinghamshire on Saturday 30 April 2022.

It is the highlight of the school clayshooting calendar.

Held in conjunction with Sporting Gun Magazine, the event will see youngsters from across the UK compete across three challenging Sporting courses. Individuals, groups and school teams are all encouraged to take part and battle it out for a glory, and prizes. The event’s High Gun will be invited to help produce a quarterly column in Sporting Gun, while also being showered with a wide variety of additional prizes which will be presented by Olympian gold medallist Pete Wilson MBE.


National championships

If you’re wondering who will be the renowned clayshooters of the future, this is a good chance to spot them. The competition has become renowned for highlighting emerging talent in the world of clay shooting, with previous winners including Brody Woollard, Ronnie Green and Alfie Tibbles.
