Join the ladies of the CUSF Women’s program, Project Mapleseed and LadyGuns for this episode of “She Shoots.”
This month, we are highlighting one of the many organizations that contribute to Canada’s shooting community through promotion, development and governing of organized, recreational, and competitive target shooting in and for Canada.
We welcome Sandra Honour, President of the Shooting Federation of Canada (SFC) to our show. The Shooting Federation of Canada is recognized by Sport Canada, the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC), the Canadian Paralympic Committee (CPC) and other organizations involved in the Canadian sport system. The Shooting Federation of Canada offers programs for recreational and high-performance shooters and provides professional development for coaches and officials.
Sandra began her sports career as a swimmer on Canada’s National Team from 1979 until 1984. Once she retired from that, she took her drive and competitive spirit into shotgun sports where she thrived and again had the opportunity to represent Canada again on the international stage as a member of Team Canada’s National Shotgun Team from 1993 until 2015.
Sandra took her experiences and became active within the community as a Provincial and National Sport Governing Body Executive Member starting in 2000. She is an active supporter of gun ownership in Canada, testifying at Senate Hearings and has been interviewed for news articles and television appearances.
In 2016, Sandra was elected President of the Shooting Federation of Canada which she serves to this day.
About SHE SHOOTS PODCAST
SHE SHOOTS is a podcast for women in the shooting community and for those interested in learning more about it. It is hosted by women who shoot, hunt, and instruct and most importantly share a passion for introducing new ladies to the sport.
Coming to you on the second Tuesday of every month, the objective of SHE SHOOTS is to showcase various activities in the shooting sports and highlight the people who participate. We hope this will help you find something you are interested in learning more about and various ways to get involved.
Did you know the shooting community proudly boasts over 250,000 licensed women who participate across Canada? This sport has something for everyone and it’s easy to get out and give it a try.
Join us every month when we host SHE SHOOTS on a variety of social media platforms. This exciting collaboration is brought to you by the Canadian University Shooting Federation, Project Mapleseed and LadyGuns.
