The NSW Shooting Association is an umbrella organisation for shooting sports, also including Archery, Field Archery and Antique Arms Collecting, within NSW. The Association was formed in 1977 principally to foster the development of Olympic and Commonwealth Games shooting sports.

The NSW Shooting Association is the State member for the sport of shooting to:

  • NSW Olympic Council
  • Australian Commonwealth Games Association (NSW Division)
  • Australian Shooting Association

The Association's Charter is to promote, advance and coordinate elite and recreational shooting within the state, including recreational hunting.

It is a non profit, non political sporting body, and as such, it has become a central contact organisation in dealing with government and other sporting and safety organisations on shooting sports related matters.

The NSW Shooting Association was the shooting member of the bid committee for Sydney 2000 and offered a privately funded facility for the Sydney International Shooting Centre as well as advising on the Government preferred option.

The NSW Shooting Association represents the broadest range of shooting and shooting-related sports in NSW. Its interests cover beyond the conduct of the sport to matters affecting legislation, the environment, insurance and funding. Its General Manager currently holds the position of Secretary/Treasurer of the Australian Commonwealth Games Association (NSW Division).

The NSW Shooting Association is a public company with its Board of Directors made up of representatives from the sport.
