SAFE MANAGEMENT MEASURES (4TH EDITION) FOR THE SPORT OF SHOOTING AS PART OF THE SSA SAFE RETURN TO SPORT PLAN
Singapore has started Phase 3 of Re-opening from Dec 28, 2020. The Singapore Shooting Association (“SSA”) has updated the Safe Management Measures (“SMMs”), endorsed by Sport Singapore (SportSG”), to better protect our national athletes, aspiring champions,
shooting enthusiasts and learners while they train or play. We strongly encourage all shooting venue managers or operators to adopt or build on these shooting specific guidelines and implement them at their own premises. This document should be read in conjunction with SportSG’s Advisory for Resumption of Sport and Physical Exercise & Activity for Phase.

- All persons are also required to have their own personal hand sanitizers/disinfectants handy and wipe down their equipment before and after use, especially the equipment that would be handled by the armorer e.g. gun cases or gun case handles.
- All persons should refrain from sharing items or sport equipment.
- Frequent cleaning of high-touch surfaces and disinfection of the premises shall be done daily.
Safe Distancing in General
- All shooting appointments shall be controlled to better manage the crowd and optimize range usage
- by time block;
- by group size of eight (8) persons and by specific range; and
- by physical distance during shooting.
- Movement and congregation of people shall be further controlled especially at entrances, gun issuing counter and other common-use facility areas.
- All persons must keep a minimum physical distance of one (1) meter from one another.

- The maximum capacity of the premises shall be capped at fifty (50) persons or according to the Gross Floor Area of eight (8) square-meters (m2) per person, whichever is lower.
- All persons must not overstay their booked appointment. For example, if the scheduled appointment is 9.30am-11.30am, then the visitor could only visit the NSC within this time window.
- All persons must keep short all in-person conversations, interactions, transactions or visits to common areas e.g. toilets, washing points, armory, etc. Please adopt the Take/Use-and-Leave approach.
