FITASC Sporting

FITASC Sporting (FSP) 

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

FSP is governed internationally by FITASC (which stands for the Fédération Internationale de Tir aux Armes Sportives de Chasse [Translation:  International Federation for Shooting Sporting Guns].

FITASC Sporting (FSP) is like English Sporting (ESP), but there are key differences. 

FSP targets are shot ‘gun down’, meaning that the gun cannot be mounted on the shoulder until the targets are thrown and visible.

Please note that if a shooter has already represented another Country/Team in any discipline:

He/she must have been officially resident in the country he/she wishes to represent for a minimum continual period of one year.

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

There are 4 selection shoots that run between March and July 2024.

Scores are submitted after the last selection shoot with the best 3 from 4 scores to count. 

Points are calculated from High Gun of each day and shooters with the lowest points go through to represent England.  Please note High Gun will be taken from each day.

In the event of a tie for a place in the England Team, the lowest points from the final selection shoot will be used to decide the place.  If a tie still exists after this, countback scores from the EO will be used.

Scores to be submitted to CPSA HQ by Midday on Tuesday 16th July 2024.
