Stay-at-Home 10 meter Air Rifle Competition

Welcome to the Canadian University Shooting Federation (CUSF) 2020 Stay-at-Home 10 meter Air Rifle Competition! This competition was created to allow Canadian high school and post-secondary students to partake in competitive shooting sports in an informal range environment.

The event is based on the Olympic-style International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) 10-meter air rifle shooting discipline and will be completed using .177/4.5 mm pellet rifles. CUSF rules and print-out targets will be used throughout this competition and will feature relaxed rules and provide greater accessibility to all students!

We are also very excited to announce that TESRO Canada, an Ottawa based competition shooting equipment provider, will be providing prizes for this competition. The competition will be open to all Canadian students who have a CUSF membership and will run until August 31 2020.

Our mission is to allow students to maintain their participation in shooting sports in a fun, affordable, accessible and competitive way while practicing social distancing. This competition is open to any Canadian high school and university/college students, so tell your friends and family to get involved!
