Sociedad Italiana de Tiro al Segno (in English: Italian Target Shooting Society), mostly known for its acronym SITAS, is an Argentine sports club located in El Palomar, Buenos Aires. A wide range of sports are practised at the club, such as artistic gymnastics, athletics, basque pelota, basketball, bowls, bowling, cestoball, field hockey, football, judo, paddle tennis, roller skating, rugby union target shooting, show jumping, swimming and taekwondo.
The club was founded by a group of Italian immigrants who were enthusiasts about target shooting. On September 20, 1895, the institution opened its first shooting range in Villa Devoto with the celebration of a shooting contest. Then-President of Argentina Marcelo T. De Alvear and some of his ministers attended to the act.
After the closure of the range in 1926, SITAS acquired a land to Ramos Mejía family, where on December 4, 1938, the club opened its sports facilities. Since then, SITAS has added many activities becoming a multi-sports club.
