What is an Active Support Unit?
An Active Support Unit (ASU) is a group of 18+ volunteers who may not want, or be able to volunteer on a weekly basis with a section or Scout Group, but still wish to volunteer and provide some skills to Scouting locally.
Gareth Davies – Active Support Manager
Torfaen’s Projectiles ASU is a team of individuals with a passion and specialisation in target sports. At present, we are able to organise the following activities for Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers in and around Torfaen:
- Air Rifle Shooting
- Air Pistol Shooting
- Tomahawk Throwing
- Paintballing (via external providers)
- Wild Slings
- Nerf Target Shooting / Combat
- Sporter Crossbow Shooting
- Small Bore (.22) Rifle Shooting (via external providers)
- ‘Soft’ Rifle Shooting (suitable for Squirrels and Beavers)
Target Sports like Shooting are the only activities that The Scout Association require written parental permission for Young People to take part in.
