JROTC Matches



All JROTC Units that are eligible to compete in air rifle marksmanship through their respective cadet commands are invited to participate in the 2016-2017 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 2017. Teams/ individuals may then qualify to compete in the National JROTC Championship held 23- 25 March 2017 at Anniston, AL. All postal results will be separated by service.

The 2016-2017 JROTC Air Rifle Postal is a 10-meter three- position (3X10) air rifle competition. The U. S. Army Cadet Command, TECOM, the Naval Service Training Command, AFOATS and the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) jointly conduct this competition. The 2016-2018 11th Edition of the National Standard Three Position Air Rifle Rules governs. Rulebooks may be downloaded from the CMP web site at http://thecmp.org/wp- content/uploads/Rules.pdf. JROTC units may enter as many cadets as they wish in the postal competition.
