Hey GOC!

If you haven't heard of our organization before then welcome! We are the Canadian University Shooting Federation (CUSF), a federal non-profit dedicated to promoting the shooting sports at post-secondary institutions. As of now we have been in operation for about 2 years. We operate a sports league that is open for any University/College student across the country, help students establish new clubs and assist existing clubs in a variety of ways.

Things are really rolling now since I last posted here! GOC has been very supportive and I am super grateful for all the offers of assistance that people have offered! Figured it was about time for an update, so heres what our team has been up to:

1. Programs revamp - from the lessons learned over our first trap/skeet/rifle competitions we are working to create a scalable system which can accommodate growth in the future! We are preparing to put these into practice for our next tournament: the CUSF Fall Classic.

2. New programs implementation - we have been hard at work to create new programs to benefit our students. This includes scholarships, womens program, standardized RO and firearms training, and standard operation procedures for student club operations (things like how to run a range event, how to recruit, how to form a team ect).

3. New sponsorships - Cabelas, Windscribe and J&L Supply have come onboard as sponsors to support us! It's awesome to have support from all types of industries!

4. New partnerships - In terms of partnerships, the Association of Collegiate Unions International (ACUI) out of the states wants to collaborate to have a North American Shotgun Competition! They have been running Clay Target competitions for over 50 years, so it will be fun to have a combined shoot with them USA fellers.

5. Another school coming onboard - We are happy to welcome the Royal Military College into the fold! Check them out on Instagram and Facebook.

6. Volunteers - Very grateful to have the volunteer support that we have had. The exec, the board, our volunteer staff and external organizations volunteers have all dedicated countless hours to ensure that students can have safe, fun range experiences. Thanks a ton to everyone who has helped us on this journey!

If you have a Toronto chapter, I will provide some financial support.

Introducing the next generation to firearms and shootings sports is the most important investment the gun community can do.

Have you talked to CCFR/Project Mapleseed? It is an excellent introduction to the new shooter in basic skills, currently instructors are a bit thin on the ground but already the next generation is growing. There might be instructors or instructors in training in the vicinity of some of the clubs and able to run clinics.

We have been working a bit with the CCFR but haven't contacted Project Mapleseed. Great idea thanks!
