SAPSA Dedicated Sport Status
Dedicated Sport Status / SAPSA
Should you wish to attain "Dedicated Sport Status" as a sports shooter at the PE Rifle & Pistol Club, then you will need to join the South African Practical Shooting Association (SAPSA) - you have to apply through a recognised shooting club (e.g. PERPC), in the province in which you are domiciled.
Join the Port Elizabeth Rifle & Pistol Club, and include the SAPSA option. Additional family members living under the same roof, or junior members under 21 years old, pay half price.
The Port Elizabeth Rifle & Pistol Club will process your SAPSA registration and advise you of your SAPSA membership number.
To qualify for Dedicated Sport Status you must first of all be affiliated to SAPSA, i.e. your membership must be current, and in good standing.
Thereafter, you need to obtain 6 shooting credits per year. You will accumulate 1 credit for each IPSC-accredited Club competition, 2 for a Provincial competition and 3 credits for each National competition you participate in. (View the Event Calendar, under the Documents menu for a full breakdown of the credits available per club event).
After you have obtained a minimum of 6 credits within a 12-month calendar year, you can apply for a letter from SAPSA, declaring your Dedicated Sport Status.
It is each shooter’s responsibility to keep track of his/her credits.
