CCRS - The Council for Cadet Rifle Shooting 
A charitable Incorporated Organisation Registered Charity Number 1151650 
Origins 
CCRS was formed in 1969 through the amalgamation of three previous organisations – the Imperial Cadet Association, The Public Schools Rifle Matches Association, and the Committee responsible for organising the Inter-Service Cadet Rifle Meeting. 
 
From its inception it has been supported by the Ministry of Defence through the agencies of the Combined Cadet Force Association (CCFA), the Sea Cadet Corps (SCC), The Army Cadet Force Association (ACFA) and the Air Training Corps (ATC). 
 
All the pre-Service organisations, the Council of RFCAs, the NRA, the NSRA and BSSRA were founder members. 
 
CCRS became a Registered Charity (No 284838) in 1982 and a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (Registered No. 1151650) on 31 December 2013. 
Aims 
CCRS acts as a central body, which can speak with authority and give advice on cadet shooting matters. Its responsibilities, exercised with the approval of the Ministry of Defence, include liaison between other representative shooting authorities and units of the pre-Service cadet organisations and the dissemination of information on shooting matters effecting cadets. 
 
In addition to arranging and administering shooting competitions, postal matches, coaching courses and other shooting events for cadets at schools and units in the Commonwealth, CCRS also provides administrative support for cadet teams selected to represent Great Britain in National and International matches, both at home and overseas. 
 
Our Home Base 
CCRS has its base in Derby Lodge at Bisley, where it provides information and administration throughout the year, as well as canteen and recreational facilities for participants in the Schools and Inter-Service Rifle Meetings and cadets attending National Meetings at Bisley.
