The state level Junior Olympic 3-position air rifle competitions are designed to qualify competitors to attend the National Junior Olympic 3-Position Air Rifle Championships. This new program encourages the continued growth of air rifle competition shooting throughout the United States. Three-position sporter and precision air rifle shooting represents the fastest-growing and largest segment of youth sport shooting events in our country.   Our goal is to have all states represented in the First Annual National Junior Olympic 3-Position Air Rifle Championships.

USA Shooting is serving as the coordinator of this cooperative program representing the American Legion, 4-H Shooting Sports, the Civilian Marksmanship Program and others.

     The 4 man teams invited to the National Championship will receive limited support for housing and meals while in Atlanta and may receive limited travel funding depending on how much sponsorship  funding is received.  One major sponsorship has already been approved by the CMP Board of Directors ; other sponsorships are pending.

     In addition to the sporter and precision teams that will represent each state in the National Championship, up to 25 at- large individual qualifiers will be selected in sporter and 25 in precision to participate in the national competition.  This will assure that all the best three-position sporter and precision air rifle junior shooters in the U.S. have an opportunity to qualify.  The championship provides for one day for travel and two days of competition where there is a 3X20 event each day.  A final for the top eight individual shooters will be held at the end of the second 3X20 event.  At the championship, sporter teams  and precision teams will report on a date to be determined at a later.



Competitors must fire in the Mississippi State 3 Position Air Rifle Jr. Olympic Match, which will be held in both Starkville Mississippi and McComb Mississippi. Competitors should enter the match nearest their residence.


The course of fire will be 3x20 ( 20 prone, 20 standing an 20 kneeling) for both precision and sporter events.


Any student currently enrolled in middle or high school (or equivalent educational program such as home schooling). USA Shooting individual junior memberships are not required for participation in state qualifying competitions.


The rules for conduct for the match will be the uniform 3 position air rifle rules as adopted recently by USA Shooting American Legion, CMP, 4-H,  National Guard and other organizations that sponsor youth 3-Position Air Rifle programs.  A copy of these rules may be obtained for $2.00 from:
