State 3PAR Junior Olympic Championships
State Three-Position Air Rifle Junior Olympic Championships are shoulder-to-shoulder matches held on the local level. Participation in these matches can earn athletes the opportunity to compete at the National 3PAR Championships. The National 3PAR Championship is a combined event with the National 3PAR Junior Olympic Championship and the CMP National Championship, held annually during the summer months.
Match sponsors can sanction a 3PAR State Junior Olympic Championship by following the match guidelines and submitting a match application. These state matches can be held in more than one location in each state.
The National 3PAR Junior Olympic Championships were originally conducted by USA Shooting and held at the Tom Lowe Shooting Center in Atlanta, Georgia, site of the 1996 Olympics Games. The matches moved to Bowling Green, Kentucky and were held back to back with the Daisy Air Championships. The CMP became more involved in 2008, the first year that the match was hosted by CMP. CMP now conducts these matches in partnership with USA Shooting. These matches are held at either the CMP Marksmanship Center – South in Anniston, Alabama or the Gary Anderson CMP Marksmanship Center located in Camp Perry, Ohio. In 2012, the CMP combined the National 3PAR Junior Olympic Championship with the CMP 3PAR National.
