All participants must qualify as outlined in the state guide to

The National Standard Three-Position Air Rifle Rules (3rd Edition)
All shooters must fire in a state qualifying competition. States will
select teams and provide the necessary information to the selected
winners. In addition to teams, approximately 30 nationally ranked
individuals (15 Sporter and 15 Precision) as determined from nationally
consolidated state results and not identified as a participating
team member will also be invited. Individuals may not participate in
both the sporter and precision events.
A parent or guardian must accompany individuals under age 18. USA
not accept the responsibility of minors traveling alone!
Each state may send one, four-person team for Sporter and one,
four-person team for Precision.
States are required to maintain club or scholastic team integrity.
The same team may not participate
in both events. State Teams must comply with the "School
Age Team" rule in the National Standard Rules.
If the highest scoring team in the state qualifier cannot attend,
the next placing team may represent the state.
Teams that loose a member for some reason may replace that person
with another member of the same club or school.
Each state team must have a designated coach to be responsible for
their Precision and Sporter teams.
This person(s) will be responsible for arranging travel for the teams
and for team discipline while at the championship.
Assistant coaches may attend at their own expense.
COURSE OF FIRE: Sporter and Precision
Competitors will shoot two courses of 3x20. One course will be fired
each day. This will make up the individual championship aggregate.
Sporter Air Rifle – 3x20 (20 prone, 20 standing, 20 kneeling)
Finals – the top eight individual shooters in the Sporter and
precision aggregates will fire a 10 shot Final.
Team totals will be based on both 3x20 scores added together. The
individual National Junior Championship
will be based on the total of the two 3x20 scores and, for the top
eight, the 10 shot final. National Standard Rule 10.0.
Coaching assistance on the line will be allowed during sighting
shots only. After sighting shots are complete
and record shots have begun, shooters may not return to the sighting
target and may not receive any further coaching.
Coaching assistance on the line is not allowed. After sighting
shots are complete and record shots have begun,
shooters may not return to the sighting target.
All members of a team will be squadded on the same relay (except where
team members are sharing equipment).
They will not be side by side but spread within a 12-point
section of targets. That will allow teams to plan other
activities before or after shooting. Teams and individual shooters will
be seeded so the highest scoring teams
and individuals in state qualifiers will fire on the third relay.

HOUSING & MEALS:
TRAVEL: The only part of the program that is partially reimbursable.
All teams are responsible for their own travel to and from Atlanta.
Depending on the level of sponsorships, some amount of land or air travel
expenses will be reimbursed.
State coaches are encouraged to provide ground transportation if
traveling by van or bus for individual shooters selected from their state.
In lieu of bus transportation the CMP will provide funds for subsidizing
team vans for local transportation. Vans for teams that arrive by air have
been contracted with Alamo Rental Cars. Reservations for these vans
(approximately 16) are made through the USA Shooting contact person, NOT
through Alamo. This will allow greater mobility for the teams and the
ability to keep teams entertained after shooting. Teams will be required
to pay $150 toward the rental of a 7-passenger van. To
make your reservation for a van, a pre payment of $150 will be required.
Individuals arriving by air may take advantage of the rental subsidy
with economy cars. Vans will not be allowed unless four or more use it.
Entry fee is $65 per competitor.
