The Western Australian Smallbore Rifle Association (WASRA) is the state association for smallbore and air rifle shooting in WA. WASRA members enjoy their sport through the four clubs. The Association headquarters are located at the Whiteman Park International Shooting Complex, Hennessey Rd, Whiteman.
In 1958 the “No 1 W.A. Smallbore Rifle Clubs Union” was formally convened. 3 years later it was renamed to the West Australian Smallbore Rifle Association with our first State Range “out in the sticks” on Jarrah Road, Kensington.
In 1966 our State Headquarters range was relocated to Harrison Range, Swanbourne, sharing Department of Defence land adjoining the SAS Barracks on West Coast Highway, where we stayed until 2013.
Now over 60 years on, and thanks to the generosity of the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, and LotteryWest, we now have a 2.5 million dollar facility at the Whiteman Park International Shooting Complex.
Whilst most members are happy shooting within a club environment and chasing a personal best each week, there are opportunities for any financial member to try out for Club, State and Australian Team selection.
We are proud to recognise the achievements of those members as Competitors, Coaches and Officials, who have all enjoyed success at various State and National Championships, Oceania Games, World Cups, World Championships, Commonwealth Games and Olympics.
