From Friday 21 August, all sporting clubs must have a qualified COVID Marshal at every event.
It is recommended that SSAA SA Clubs ask all of their Range Officers to undertake the ‘COVID Marshal’ online training and certification.
A COVID Marshal must:
“Organisations (sport and recreation clubs) that were previously directed to close under the Directions must complete a COVID-19 Safe Plan (the Plan) before they can reopen. The Plan will outline how organisations staff and patrons can be kept safe from COVID-19.”
The plan must be completed, PRINTED, and made available at organisations premises.
The Monarto Shooting Complex is an area 60km east of Adelaide on which a number of shooting clubs and associations are situated. The SSAA SA also has its State office and training centre at Monarto.
The Association’s ranges at Monarto are numbered 1-7, from which 11 clubs shoot. These clubs are: Practical Shooting SA (S37), Monarto Handgun Metallic Silhouette Club (S10), Monarto Metallic Silhouette Rifle Club (S07), Security & Allied Services Firearms Club (S28), Conservation and Wildlife Management (S09), Big Game Rifle Club (S31), Adelaide Target Shooting Club (S22), Goolwa Pistol Club (S25), Monarto Black Powder & Shooting Club (S12).
The ranges are divided into two groups. Ranges 1-4 have shooting distances from 25m to 500m. Ranges 5-7 have distances from 25m to 200m. The Monarto ranges are also used by other clubs for specific events, such as Para Black Powder (S06) and Goolwa Pistol Club (S25).
Please note that the SSAA Monarto State Range Program 2020 has been produced as a planning tool for range allocation and does not show what disciplines or events individual clubs have on the ranges they are programmed to use. SSAA SA clubs are identified by two means; their name and an Association number; eg Monarto Metallic Silhouette Rifle Club (S07).
For information regarding the nature of the club use on a particular day, please contact the club directly.
