Young Leaders

The Young Leaders' Scheme is just one of the exciting programme elements in the Explorer Scout section.

All leaders in the Beaver Scout, Cub Scout and Scout Section who are between the ages of 14 and 18 must be members of an Explorer Scout Young Leaders' Unit. They are Explorer Scouts who choose to devote a large proportion of their time in Scouting to service in another section.

Target Sprint is Coming to CRAI
26/01/2021 By Dave Cook
We are deighted to confirm that we have secured a £15K Investment in Target Shooting through Sports Wales (90% Grant Funded with a 10% Contribution from CRAI Scout District Council).
The Investment is centred around upgrading the Rifle Ranges we have at CRAI Scout Activity Centre to offer 10M indoor shooting, a wider variety of targets (Knockdown, bell targets etc.), investment in AirArms MPR400 Sporter PCP Rifles along with all of the additional equipment needed to support these, Targets, Pellets and Instructor Courses for Club Coaches and Three position Shooting (Kneeling Prone and standing) as well as the equipment needed to support these shooting styles.
We will also be purchasing an Outdoor “Pop-up” range to support an Activity called Target Sprint as well as running the necessary training to allow YPST Diploma Holders to run Target Sprint sessions.
We will be registering as a Target Sprint Hub (only the fourth in Wales) and will be looking to run Monthly Shooting sessions, supported by senior coaches from across South Wales, that will be accessible by the whole community (not just Scouts).  this will help us raise funds and establish CRAI as an importnt Community Location. We will be hoping to create shooting teams to take part in National Scout and Open competitions in Target Sprint and Target Shooting.
If you, or someone you know, would be interested in getting involved in Target Sprint, the Monthly Shooting sessions or the additional courses please contact me. Obviously all of the equipment and ranges will be availible for use by existing YPST Diploma Holders (restrictions will be in place on equipment that requires specialist training as you would expect).
And OBVIOUSLY all of these activities are currently restricted by the current Pandemic and our Face to Face Scouting status of "Red".
