Volunteer Opportunities


Though we strive to reach the needs of all of our competitors and guests, we still want your help! consider volunteering, today!


CMP Seeking Volunteers for 2017 National Matches

For the past 20 years, the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) has been a leader in the marksmanship community. Though our staff members have worked hard to provide unparalleled service for our competitors and guests over the last two decades, we still need more hands to help us facilitate our most popular event of the year – the National Trophy Pistol and Rifle Matches at Camp Perry, Ohio.

That’s where you come in.

The CMP is in search of volunteers to support us during our 2017 National Match events, held in June and July. These volunteers will be assisting with CMP National Match events only and will be picked from a selection process through all received Volunteer Applications.

Volunteer duties may include but are not limited to firing line work as range officers, assistance with stats/scorecards or other tasks assigned as needed.

Becoming a CMP Volunteer is a worthwhile opportunity for any competition-goer. Not only will volunteers earn behind-the-scenes access to the CMP competitions process, they’re also destined to create unforgettable memories with staff members and participants along the way.

Why Should I Volunteer?

Chosen individuals will receive a per diem travel stipend (based on amount of time worked) and exclusive benefits offered only to those who graciously donate their time to helping us provide an exceptional experience for all of our guests.

What Do I Need to Know?

All chosen volunteers will attend a specialized Range Officer training course, provided by the CMP, that will quickly brush up on all you need to know. The Range Officer Course is typically offered for $75/person, but is completely FREE for volunteers – a possible $150 value for those volunteering for both rifle and pistol.

No past experience is needed to volunteer, though knowledge of guns, gun safety and range procedures is a plus!

Can I Still Compete If I Volunteer?

Our helpers are welcome and encouraged to compete during times he or she is not volunteering.

How Do I Apply?

Sales Inspection and Repair

Our Inspection and Repair process, assisted by volunteers, helps CMP reduce its labor costs and makes rifle purchases more affordable. Assignments are based primarily on individual level of familiarity with the M1 Garand rifle and CMP needs at the time. Volunteers must be pre-approved. Because of nature of the commodity with which we deal, all volunteers must be scheduled in advance. Walk-ons will not be accepted.

For more information, visit our Sales Inspection and Repair page. To schedule days, please contact Adam Hanvey at [email protected], or call 256-835-8455, ext. 406.
