What is is?

The Council for Cadet Rifle Shooting, CCRS was formed in 1969 through the amalgamation of the former Imperial Cadet Association, the Public Schools Rifle Matches Association and the Committee responsible for 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, the Sea Cadet Corps, the Army Cadet Force Association and the Air Training Corps. All the pre-Service organisations, the Council of RFCAs, the NRA, NSRA and BSSRA were founder members of CCRS. CCRS became a Registered Charity (No. 284838) in 1982 and a Charitable Incorporated Organisation on 31st December 2013. CCRS is now also affiliated to the CPSA.
