Great Britain Match Rifle Team Captain Woomera Match – Bisley 2025 – Nominations Sought

Team Captain Invitation

Published on:


Nominations are sought for the role of Great Britain Match Rifle Team Captain Woomera Match which will be held at Bisley in 2025.It is recognized that the selection and appointment of the Captain for a Great Britain team is a highly important decision. To be appointed Captain is a great honour but it is also a great responsibility. The ability to create a winning team is not the only criterion needed for a successful Captain. The manner in which the team conducts itself, both on and off the ranges, could affect the standing of the NRA, target shooting and indeed the country. It is therefore vital that the person selected should have the appropriate personality and skills to carry out all aspects of the task in the appropriate manner. The selection process, while being transparent and fair, should result in the appointment of someone who meets these requirements.The criteria for selection are:

  1. Nominees must have been full members of the NRA for a minimum continuous period of not less than 3 years (1 year for u/25 and u/21 teams) to be eligible for nomination and must remain so during the full period of the appointment. A nominee’s subscription (where appropriate) must be fully paid up at the date of nomination.
  2. Nominations must be supported by signatures of three full Members of the NRA whose subscription must be fully paid up at the date of nomination.
  3. Nominations may not be supported by any current member of the relevant Discipline Team Captain Selection Panel, Electoral College or working group (see footnote).
  4. Nominations in writing, bearing original or electronic signatures of the candidate and supporters, must reach the Secretary General at the NRA Offices by 5pm on Friday 19th January 2024
  5. Candidates Team Captain Nomination Forms will be circulated with the voting papers, and they should submit a draft as per the attached format with this nomination.  The Secretary General will return CVs which are too long.
