About the Club
Mission Statement and Ethos
The objective of the club is to provide for and promote the safe conduct of shooting at inanimate targets for recreation and competition.
ECSC is a members’ club. All members have a vote and the club is run entirely by volunteers. The club will charge fees and make profits from appropriate activities, but such fees and profits are always retained in the club for the furtherance of its objectives and the benefit of the members as a whole. The club is not run for the financial benefit of any individual members, officers or principals.
The club’s range is situated near Roundwood, Co. Wicklow, Ireland. Visitors with an interest in the activities of the club are most welcome on any Sunday between 10:00am and 2:00pm . You can use the “Contact Us” page to send us a short e-mail so that we know you are coming. On your first visit, we will show you the facilities and the range of shooting sports which we provide. You will get an introduction to the skills involved in the various disciplines and meet some of the members. We are a multi disciplinary club and all members can use any of the facilities. This is a good approach if you do not have an initial preference as it helps to try out what is on offer and see what you like best.
The facilities of the club provide for :
- Shotgun – Clay pigeon shooting, including DTL, Skeet and Sporting.
- Rifle – target rifle and paper target shooting with sporting rifle, benchrest and silhouette out to 100 metres. All smallbore, as the location is not suitable for fullbore rifle shooting. Gallery rifle is not routinely catered for, but the club facilities allow it to be done from time to time as required.
- Pistol – smallbore and centrefire to 25 metres. Chiefly bullseye and other paper target shooting, including the disciplines of ISSF.
Shooting times are 9.00am to 3.00pm on Sundays.
How to Join
We are always interested in meeting people who would like to join a shooting club .As you will have seen from this web site, we are a multi discipline club so you can try out the variety of shooting sports available and see what you like best. The way to start joining is to come and see us on the range to see our facilities, meet some of our members and get a feel for how we operate. The main range day is Sunday and whilst the range is open between 10 and 15:00, we ask all potential new members to arrive between 12:00 and 13:00 so that we can ensure the right people are available to host you.
Let us know of your interest by sending us an e-mail using the “contact” page on this site. We will reply to you with detailed directions showing how to find the range in Roundwood. On arrival, we will show you around and introduce you to some members. We will explain the way we operate and the safety procedures which must be followed. We will then introduce you to the types of shooting you want to try with detailed tuition and supervision. After a few visits, you will be in a position to decide if you want to join the club and further develop your interests.
Skills are developed via coaching and introductory classes including firearm safety and handling. More advanced classes are run from time to time as the need dictates.
