English Skeet (ESK)

Welcome to the English Skeet Team page.  Everything you need to know about representing England in this discipline can be found here.

Skeet is a word of Scandinavian origin, though the original discipline originated in America.  An English Skeet (ESK) layout has two traps situated in a high house to the left and a low house to the right, about 40 metres apart, which throw the targets across the layout.  There are seven stands which the shooter completes from left to right.  A sequence is used, where the targets are thrown either as singles, or as pairs where the high and low target are thrown simultaneously.  For more information please click here

 

Shooting for England

To be eligible to represent any England Clay Target Shooting Team please see England Team Handbook.  England Team Handbook

Below is the process used to decide selection for the England ESK Team for Home International Team matches only (under the jurisdiction of the ICTSC).   

There are 2 selection shoots that run between March and June each year. Where these shoots are held is determined by a rota with one being held in the North and one being held in the South.

To attend an ESK selection shoot, the shooter must submit 5 best scores from 3 different grounds for the period 1st July 2021 - 28th February 2022. 

The deadline for submitting these scores is Midnight on 28th February 2022

Please submit your scores here

From these scores the top 60 Seniors, 15 Ladies, 15 Juniors, 15 Veterans and 15 Super-veterans are invited to attend the selection shoots, of which they must attend both as it is all scores to count.

At the end of the 2nd Selection shoot, scores are submitted and scores calculated from High Gun.  Those with the best scores will go through to the team

England Team Captaincy

  • The Team Captain will be the member with the most number of appearances (cpsa) in the specific event’s team, irrespective of category.  If any team member has already been Captain at any time in the past, their appearances will be counted from the year following their last captaincy.
  • In the event of two or more members having the same number of caps, the member with the earliest first team appearance will become Captain.  If there is still a tie, the lowest ORIGINAL CPSA number will determine the captaincy for that year. 

At a team’s inception, the member with the lowest qualifying total points score will take the captaincy, if there is a tie, the lowest ORIGINAL CPSA number will determine the captaincy for that year.
