HOW TO START UP A CLUB
Welcome to the Australian Clay Target Association information page on starting a new club.
State and Territory governments provide additional support to State/Territory Associations and sporting clubs, including funding for officials, grants, access to State/Territory Institiutes of Sport and attendance at or assistance with courses for officials, players and coaches.
Firstly you will require a recommendation from your zone and then your state. If you contact your State administrator they will be able to put you in contact with the zone. A letter will need to be sent to the ACTA from the State recommending your affiliation and we will then commence affiliation with the ACTA. The annual fee for affiliation is $295.
If you have not yet contacted the Firearms Registry in your state regarding regulations we recommend you start with them. To visit the Firearms Registry website in your respective State; see the links below in red:
