Welcome to SSAA Sydney Branch

Welcome to the Sporting Shooters Association of Australia (NSW) Sydney Branch Inc, Australia's peak body for sporting shooters.

With more than 30,000 members, we are not only the largest, but the most diverse shooting organisation in the state. We have 5 ranges with excellent shooting facilities and range staff to make your shooting experience safe, fun, and unique.

It’s SAFE because everyone involved with the sport takes the safety of all participants seriously.

It’s FUN because it’s a sport that allows anyone (over 12 of course) to participate on a level playing field; that makes it a great family sport.

And it’s UNIQUE because it’s one of the oldest Olympic sports and is a sport that you can enjoy in a group or as an individual.

Welcome to SSAA Sydney Branch

Welcome to the Sporting Shooters Association of Australia (NSW) Sydney Branch Inc, Australia's peak body for sporting shooters.

With more than 30,000 members, we are not only the largest, but the most diverse shooting organisation in the state. We have 5 ranges with excellent shooting facilities and range staff to make your shooting experience safe, fun, and unique.

It’s SAFE because everyone involved with the sport takes the safety of all participants seriously. In fact, shooting is one of the safest sports around! We, as law abiding firearms owners, are regulated by some of the strictest gun laws, not only in Australia but worldwide.

It’s FUN because it’s a sport that allows anyone (over 12 of course) to participate on a level playing field; that makes it a great family sport. The shooting sports also offer a large variety of different disciplines that are challenging in many different ways and also encourage a strong sense of camaraderie amongst competitors.

And it’s UNIQUE because it’s one of the oldest Olympic sports and is a sport that you can enjoy in a group or as an individual. It doesn’t require a shooter to be the fittest, or the fastest or the tallest - everyone is welcome to participate. However, it does require skill, accuracy and consistency which makes for a very challenging sport.

The SSAA can help new shooters get involved in one of Australia's most challenging and exciting sports. Staff at our shooting ranges can help you through the membership process and conduct safety training to help you qualify for a firearms licence. Once you have been issued with your licence you are on the road to a pleasurable and rewarding sport.

Whether your interest is hunting, collecting, or target shooting - pistols, rifles or shotguns, the SSAA can help you.

Put Something Back...

With over 30,000 members, the SSAA (NSW) Sydney Branch Inc. is by far the largest SSAA branch.  If you are a SSAA member living in or around Sydney, chances are that this is your Branch. Check your SSAA membership card (SYDNEY N01) to see if you are a Sydney Branch member.

The Branch owns the Silverdale range, has a 50% share in the St Marys Indoor Shooting Centre, and has access to three other ranges:  Holroyd, Hornsby and Anzac at Malabar.  Scores of members volunteer their time as range officers on those ranges, to provide facilities for members. The Branch is run by an elected Committee of 13 volunteers.  If you enjoy using these facilities, talk to us about how you can put something back into your club.
