Shooting Lessons – Beginner

To book or make inquiries email

Canberra International Clay Target Club undertakes lessons for any responsible person who wants to try Clay Target Shooting.  The lessons provide an essential and ideal introduction to the numerous styles or disciplines of clay target shooting.  Sessions are intended for those who have not previously used a shotgun, have limited experience, or perhaps wish to re-enter the sport and would just like a refresher or further instruction.

The sessions are held on the third Sunday of every month with the exception of January and December.  Sessions commence at 10:00 am with a maximum of 12 participants.  Bookings are essential, so book early as these sessions are popular.

Places are limited and booking early is essential to participate!


To provide an overview on shotguns and clay target shooting.


The lesson includes information on the club, shotgun operation, firearm safety and handling as well as shooting at a variety of clay targets (25) under the supervision of the club’s authorised instructors. An explanation of the various clay target shooting disciplines and shooting techniques is also provided.


Allow no less than two and one half hours for the instruction/shooting component.  The sessions vary in length depending on the number of participants in each session and their experience levels.  It is recommended to arrive fifteen minutes prior to the start of the lesson.
