2015 National Team Selection

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

Whilst representing their country they MUST COMPETE in the Northern Ireland Team vest.

The Northern Ireland Team Badge and members name above the front pocket and "Northern Ireland Shooting Team" on the back are the ONLY things permitted on the shooting vest.

Team Managers are empowered to remove from the competition anyone in violation of these rules.

Northern Ireland team members must attend the Home International photo call and Banquet (unless under exceptional circumstances having obtained permission to be absent from the Team Manager).

They must attend in the official Team Uniform provided free of charge to all team members by the UCPSA and remain in it until the end of the prize giving. Ladies are not permitted to wear skirts shorter than 2.5cm above the knee. Any member who fails to abide by any of the above rules or fails to abide by any group instruction given by the Team Manager will be barred from representing Northern Ireland for a period of 2 years.

The teams sent to various competitions throughout the year are selected according to the criteria set under each discipline heading. Press the appropriate name to see this years requirements.


Scores shot within Northern Ireland for Northern Ireland team selection, Ulster Cups or UCPSA Classifications can only be taken from the registered shoots listed in the year book or published by the Board on the Associations web site www.ucpsa.com. 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 (1 in OSK) may be shot at non UCPSA shoots which must be outside of Northern Ireland thereby replacing up to 2 scores (1 in OSK). 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 returned to the UCPSA Statistical Officer* within seven days of the event. (*For contact details see inside back cover of year book or this website).

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

UCPSA affiliated clubs in Northern Ireland are not permitted to run events for any other association or organisation without the prior written approval of the Board.

There will be no exceptions to any of the above rules.
