CSSA Fall 2010 Airgun Training Camp
The Canadian Shooting Sports Association invites all airgun competitors to attend the Fall Airgun Training Camp in Port Clinton, Ohio, at the Camp Perry Marksmanship Training Center, taking place between Nov. 5 and 7th, 2010. The fee for the camp will be $150 CAN, payable to the CSSA office by cheque or VISA, by Oct. 22nd, 2010. Late registrations may be considered, but cannot be guaranteed. Space is limited and given on a “first-come, first served” basis.
The training camp will focus on bringing together male and female shooting athletes, both juniors and seniors, from multiple disciplines, to build a common knowledgebase and share information. Specifically, training modules will be directed to:
• ISSF (Olympic-style) air rifle and air pistol athletes
• Canada Games air rifle and air pistol athletes
• Canadian Cadet Corp air rifle athletes
• Canadian Pony Club Tetrathletes
• Modern Pentathletes
• Support Staff (coach and match official development)
The camp will take place in a world class training facility consisting of 80 electronic targets in a well-lit, climate controlled environment. Group coaching will be provided, along with individual attention as can be made available.
A series of presentations and materials will focus on training and preparing for competition. Subjects will include:
• Building a Basic Mental Program
• Planning your Practice
• Preparing for Competition
• Training for the Combined Run-Shoot Event (Pent and Tet air pistol)
• Learning the Standing Position (Cadet air rifle)
• Plus lots of shooting (bring at least 500 pellets!)
Participants will arrive any time after 4pm on Friday, Nov. 5th. Rooms (triple occupancy) will be allocated prior to arrival. There will be a brief meeting at 8pm on Friday evening. Breakfast will be available on both days between 6:30-8am. Training at the range will start promptly at 8:30 on Saturday and Sunday (lunches will be served at the range), with participants leaving by 4pm on Sunday, Nov. 7th.
Meals and Accommodations
Most meals are included in the camp fee, as follows:
• Saturday meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner.
• Sunday meals: breakfast and lunch.
• Healthy snacks available on Friday and Saturday night.
Note: if you have a food allergy (medical), please contact the camp director at least two weeks in advance of the camp for food arrangements to be made. As well, our hotel is besides a Wendy’s and a pizzeria, if you wish to eat elsewhere. Included food costs are non-refundable.
Rooming on Friday and Saturday night is included, based on triple occupancy, separated by gender. If you wish to be billeted with specific participants, please make your request with your payment by Oct.22nd, 2010. Note that rooming requests cannot be guaranteed.
Transportation to the venue will be the responsibility of each participant. We will try to assist in coordinating ride-sharing, if requested. Assistance will consist of getting people with extra space in touch with people who need a ride. We cannot guarantee that a match will be found. Ultimately, it is the participant’s responsibility to get to and from the camp venue and to and from the range facilities.
For people attending the camp from outside arriving by air, we suggest flying into Windsor, ON, renting a car and driving across the border at Detroit, Michigan. Furthermore, to reduce your costs, we suggest coordinating your flight with other people and ride-sharing from Windsor.
• Please note that a valid passport is required.
• If a minor not travelling with their parents, a consent form may be required. Please ensure that you take all necessary steps to have proper documentation, if required.
Each participant must bring their own airgun, with the exception of Cadets using the Daisy 853 (available at Camp Perry for no extra charge). Please ensure that you have proper documentation for your equipment for border crossing purposes. (No special forms are required in advance but you will need a "green sheet" for air pistols - given by Customs Canada PRIOR to crossing into the US which stays with the air pistol for life - and for air rifles, you will require your PAL and copy of rifle registration.)
While some items, like pellets, are available for a nominal fee, we recommend bringing everything that you would normally bring for an away competition. Naturally, this includes a change of clothing and toiletries. Remember though, that you are sharing accommodations among three participants, so don’t pack more than you actually need. Space will be tight in the rooms and at the range.
Financial Assistance for Juniors
If you are a junior and unable to pay the registration fee for the camp, you may apply for one of a limited number of camp scholarships. Please indicate your desire to apply and an application will be sent to you. Financial assistance is a privilege and not a right. Recipients will be individually notified and will not be publically announced. All decisions are final and not open to appeal.
