In light of the announcement on 15 March 2020 regarding the declaration of a National Disaster to combat the spread of the Covid-19 virus and further directives received from SASSCo and SASCOC the SAARA council decided to suspend all SAARA competitions until further notice.

We will monitor the situation regarding the planned international participation of our junior Protea and development teams later this year. Should the situation change towards a positive outlook a special trials match will be arranged to allow all eligible athletes to qualify.

We will assess the impact of these measures on the rest of our shooting calendar and reschedule matches where possible. We will keep you informed of any further developments through our normal communications channels.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this regard. We encourage all athletes to continue to practice and maintain their skills through individual sessions or smaller training groups. Please follow all official guidelines to protect yourself and to prevent the spread of infections.

Stay healthy and best regards.

Johan Pienaar

SAARA President
