World Shooting Para Sport in co-operation with its education partners is committed to the continued learning and development of Para Shooting athletes, coaches, classifiers and officials.

As World Shooting Para Sport continues to grow, our athlete numbers increase and we run more events and competitions, we have identified the need for increased learning support in a number of areas to ensure we are best able to support our athletes.

World Shooting Para Sport will support you through your further and continuous training and development. Our pathway programme outlines how you can progress in your training and development through national, regional and international sport events. 

World Shooting Para Sport will continue to inform National Paralympic Committees (NPCs) of all upcoming education programmes. We welcome initiatives from NPCs, National Federations (NFs) and Local Organising Committees (LOCs) to host education programmes.
