The ISSF kindly invites all the member federations to study the updated version of all Para Shooting rules – now available for download – and to promote Shooting Para Sport in their countries.
Shooting has been on the Paralympic programme since the Toronto 1976 Paralympic Games and it’s practiced today in more than 65 countries.
In 2010 the International Paralympic Committee and the International Shooting Sport Federation signed a Memorandum of Understanding to cooperate and work together in developing shooting sport; the agreement covered several areas including management, promotion of competitions and events, knowledge exchange, and education of technical officials.
In 2016, the sport was renamed and rebranded from IPC Shooting to Shooting Para Sport, while the International Federation has been renamed WSPS, World Shooting Para Sport.
The ISSF kindly asks all its member federations to support World Shooting Para Sport and their activities as much as possible, in the spirit of mutual collaboration that has always distinguished our sport.
Nowadays, WSPS is working not only to develop the traditional disciplines already included in the Paralympic Games, but also to launch new events such as Para Trap, which follows the same format of the ISSF Trap competition – with small alterations to make it suitable for athletes with different impairment types.
The rules of all Para Shooting events are available here: LINK. The ISSF invites all the member federations to study them, and to promote Shooting Para Sport in their countries.
