NASSA Membership

NASSA – An Association Built By Silhouette Shooters For Silhouette Shooters”

The shooting sports that will survive and grow over time will be the ones that have an ever-increasing digital presence. NASSA’s role is to help SRAC, the NRA and FEMETI and our North American Shooting Community do just that by digitally promoting our Silhouette Shooting Sport!

NASSA will achieve this goal by helping to connect a network of North American Silhouette Clubs and Shooters as well as partnering with our Industry Sponsors. The net effect will be to leverage the critical mass of all these North American Resources to achieve more ambitious achievements by working together.

BEST OF ALL – YOUR NASSA MEMBERSHIP IS FREE!

So far, NASSA is able to keep our operating costs low through funding by a few members of our Implementation Team. Ultimately, moving NASSA to a 5013c Non-Profit Corporation will allow us to solicit tax-deductible donations that can be used to fund more ambitious initiatives, giving more value to our NASSA Members. This would include such projects as the development of a Shooters’ Profile and expansion of the “CHAMPIONSHIP RESULTS DATABASE” Link to include performance analysis. All this with the objective of no NASSA Membership Fees!

We have divided our potential NASSA Membership into the following (4) categories, each having unique benefits as summarized below:

North American Silhouette Rifle Clubs

If you are a North American Gun Club or Association that sponsors silhouette rifle matches in High Power, Smallbore, Air Rifle and/or Lever Action, you can automatically be enrolled as a Club Member of NASSA. We are in the process of reaching out to all silhouette rifle clubs/associations to include you in our “NASSA REGIONS/RANGES” Link. Within this list of North American Club Members are also links to Individual Club Profiles with useful information and contacts.

Some of the benefits of being a NASSA Club Member are:

  • Your Club and Club Profile listed on the NASSA Website for increased visibility.
  • Your Upcoming Club Matches and Championships/Programs listed to help increase exposure and attendance.
  • Your Championship Results listed to help promote your Championship Matches.
  • Local NASSA initiatives and support for your Clubs, Associated Regions and Provinces (Canada).
  • The satisfaction of being an integral part of something bigger than just an individual Silhouette Club.

This is a WORK-IN-PROCESS. If you do not see your Club listed or Club Profile fully filled out, please contact your Regional or Provincial Director or reach out to us on the us link below to get your Club listed.

North American Silhouette Rifle Shooters

As an individual Silhouette Rifle Shooter in North America, you can automatically be enrolled as an Individual NASSA Member. We only require you to register your name and contact details on the NASSA Website for log-in purposes. Having established a log-in profile will give you access for interaction with the NASSA website. All such individual contact information will be treated confidentially.

For registering with the NASSA Website, you gain the following additional benefits:

  • The ability to post and reply on our NASSA Forums.
  • The ability to ask questions to our NASSA Blog Authors, receive replies and generate dialogue.
  • Future access to a Championship Results Database. The ultimate objective of the database is to be able to summarize your individual seasonal Championship Results for analysis and comparisons with your competitors. Database capacity will continue to grow with more NASSA investment.
  • The ability to use our NASSA Website to reach out and make new shooting friends across North America.

On this last benefit, ask an older, experienced competitive silhouette shooter what is the best thing about our Silhouette Sport and the reply is most likely “The wonderful friends I have made in the many years of shooting.” To quote a famous athlete:

“Friendships born on the field of athletic strife are the real gold of competition. Awards become corroded, friends gather no dust

Jesse Owens (Four Time Gold Medal Winner), 1936 Berlin Olympic Games

If NASSA helps you reach out and make new friends across North America, we have truly started to fulfill our Vision!

This is a WORK-IN-PROCESS. If you have any questions or you have problems registering, please contact us on the link below.

World-Wide Silhouette Rifle Shooters

North American Silhouette Shooters share one big thing with our brethren Silhouette Shooters around the World – A great love of our Silhouette Sport!

While NASSA Membership is currently reserved for Silhouette Shooters in North America, we welcome you to follow us in our NASSA journey and share in the exchange of information.

As a Silhouette Shooter outside of North America, you will be also be able to register with the NASSA Website (country of origin requested). By doing so, you gain the following benefits:

  • The ability to post and reply on our NASSA Forums.
  • The ability to ask questions to our NASSA Blog Authors, receive replies and generate dialogue.

This is a WORK-IN-PROCESS. If you have any questions or you have problems registering, please contact us on the link below.

Our Industry Sponsors

Last but not least are our Industry Sponsors. Whether you are a Silhouette Shooter owning a small business supplying services/product to our Silhouette Sport or belong to a larger Corporate entity, you are a valued partner and part of our NASSA family.

The benefits of being a NASSA Industry Sponsor are:

  • At this time, it is not NASSA’s intent to advertise for revenue generation, but solely to advance our Championship attendance through enhancement of the Championship Prize Tables or the sponsorship of Championships such as the Monarch Cup. The NASSA mission is to help drive match attendance!
  • For Our Industry Sponsors that continually contribute to our Championship Prize Tables, reciprocity from NASSA will come in the form of free advertisement on our NASSA Website.
  • Advertisement will be in the form of promotion on our “LINKS” pages and brand logo banners (live links) that appear on select pages throughout the NASSA Website.
  • Our Industry Sponsors are also welcome to post NASSA Blogs in our “NASSA TECHNICAL LIBRARY” pages to discuss your products from a technical perspective, as long as the blog content contributes to the technical development of our shooting community.

This is a WORK-IN-PROCESS. If you are a repeat contributor to our Championship Prize Tables and do not see your business listed on our website or wish to become a prize donor, please contact your Regional or Provincial Director or reach out to us on the link below to start advertise your business.
