About the League: The CSR Winter League runs from October to April each year, typically meeting on the first weekend of the month for one day of competition. The day is divided up into AM and PM, during both sessions you will shoot and be in the butts, with two separate matches typically one long range and one short range

For the majority of competitions you can expect to be shooting between 25-500x in a mixture of prone, sitting, kneeling or standing positions

These events are self-marked; at the firing point two competitors will be assigned (squadded) to one target, the first will shoot the first practice, followed by the second competitor. Meanwhile in the butts, two competitors will be assigned to each target to operate the targetry, organised by a Butts officer

If you are new to CSR or would like additional guidance, we aim to squad you as the second shooting competitor in a detail

New to CSR: For those new or looking to try Civ SR, we run 1-day ‘Introduction to Civ SR’ courses aimed at introducing you to the discipline. Further details are available here including the dates of up coming courses. The courses are run by highly experienced shooters and involve both classroom and practical on range coaching
