Only fully paid up members of the UCPSA, who are in good standing can qualify to represent Northern Ireland at Home International Tournaments.

Scores shot within Northern Ireland for Northern Ireland Team Selection, Ulster Cups or UCPSA Classifications can only be taken from the specified shoots published by the Board on the Associations website www.ucpsa.com  Shoot entry must be made under UCPSA membership number. Under no circumstances can scores be taken from any other events.

** Where the individual discipline selection procedure permits, up to a maximum of 2 scores may be used from non UCPSA shoots which must be outside of Northern Ireland. Those wishing to do so must first obtain a UCPSA form from their Discipline Representative* or the above web site, have it completed by the event organizer or secretary and return it to the UCPSA Statistical Officer* within seven days of the event.

Failure to return the correct form properly completed on time will result in the score being void.
