BASC (British Association of Shooting and Conservation) recently announced it would be sponsoring the 2019 BSYS (British Schools and Young Shots)
It was also announced that BASC would be backing the 32-bird under-14s course for the third year in a row, and that the winning school on the Black course (now known as the BASC course) will be given £500 towards their clay shooting team.
Bloxham School won this accolade last year as part of their domination of all the team events. The competition has seen the likes of Amber Hill and Ben Llewellyn compete in the past – so there’s no telling who will rise through the ranks and become clay shooting’s next star.
Alfie Tibbles, the reigning champion, will return this year to defend his crown.
“Young Shots and clay shooting are two vitally important areas that BASC is keen to keep working on and developing.” said David Ilsley, BASC’s head of marketing, “The opportunity to combine this into one event is absolutely fantastic. We want to encourage more people to take up shooting and clay shooting is an excellent sport to get involved in, we hope all the participants have a wonderful time and tell all their friends about it.”
