NSWRA Women on Target (WOT) Program
Biathlon also took part in NSWRA’s WOT program held over the weekend of 28th and 29th October. The weekend was fantastically attended with 40 attendees participating over each of the two days. The girls learnt about F Class, TR, scatt shooting and of course biathlon. Feedback from the participants included how nice everyone was, the coaches were patient and they loved the experience. Great work from NSWRA for their obtaining of the Grant and introducing females to the different disciplines of shooting within NRAA and its member States, Territories and Clubs.
