• To promote and improve the role of the sporting shooter in Australia.

• To help educate young people in the skills of hunting, shooting and proper care and safe handling of firearms. 

• To encourage all hunters to abide by a strict code of ethics.

• To work for a better understanding between landholder and Association member.

• To actively advocate game conservation and assist appropriate authorities in game management programs.

• To act as an effective and credible voice, representing all Australian shooters to the public, community leaders and authorities.


SSAA Code of Ethics

• SSAA members undertake to adhere to the following basic ethical requirements (breach of which may result in suspension of membership or expulsion from the Association).

• Having first obtained a landholder's permission to shoot on his property, members consider themselves to be invited guests, so that they will be welcome on subsequent visits.

• They obey the rules of safe firearm handling and diplomatically yet firmly insist others to do the same.

• They obey relevant game laws and regulations.

• They acquire marksmanship and hunting skills which will ensure clean harvesting of game.

• They support game conservation programs.

And, most importantly, they pass on to youngsters the attitudes to game and conservation and the skills of safe firearms ownership which are the hallmark of the sporting shooter.

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.
