JROTC Matches

JROTC 3PAR Matches

All JROTC Units that are eligible to compete in air rifle marksmanship through their respective cadet commands are invited to participate in the 2018-2019 JROTC Air Rifle Postal Competition.  This official program provides information to guide your unit’s participation.  The JROTC Postal gives all cadets who participate in air rifle marksmanship an opportunity to experience a national-level competition, 

fired at their unit’s home range.  In addition to providing your unit with a national ranking, results from this competition will be used to select the JROTC unit teams and at-large individuals that will be invited to participate in the Regional JROTC Service Championships in February 2019.  Teams/ individuals may then qualify to compete in the National JROTC Championship in March 2019.
