The Dynamic Shooting Sports (British Columbia) Association is a Society founded in 2015 with the following purpose:
“The Association exists to promote safe and responsible participation in dynamic shooting sports.”
The first two Clubs to affiliate with DSSBCA have been Thompson Mountain Sportsman Association and Chilliwack Fish and Game Protective Association. We are actively working with several other clubs in BC to further facilitate the growth of action shooting sports.
DSSBCA was registered as a formal Society to facilitate expanding dynamic shooting sports. As a Society DSSBCA may acquire insurance, a bank account, and own property. It is hoped that the Society will allow interested Clubs to pool their resources and purchase equipment and props to facilitate hosting matches. It also provides the framework for additional Clubs to raise or formalize their own dynamic shooting sections.
DSSBCA created the CASE qualifier program to assess participants competency and safety with a firearm in a dynamic shooting environment. This practical exam satisfies Host Club needs to demonstrate Due Diligence prior to allowing events within their club location.
Volunteerism and sportsmanship are central tenets of DSSBCA; participant Clubs pledge match organizers will never be paid, and prizes will never be distributed based upon placement. Any monies raised through DSSBCA activities must be returned to the Society for use by the Membership to further the community of sport shooting competitions. Prizes are awarded as participation “door prizes” so even the newest participants have a chance at winning.
As a Society DSSBCA has Annual General Membership meetings, and Members may have their say in the functioning of the Society, including reviewing financial statements and voting upon Directors to lead the Society.
