Located along the breathtaking Lake Erie shoreline and offering air gun and pistol as well as highpower and vintage, smallbore and long range rifle opportunities – not to mention an entire commercial avenue of some of today’s leading vendors in the industry – there’s a little something for everyone at the National Matches!
Marksmanship education and training is a key component of our mission. When we provide opportunities for experienced shooters and instructors to receive advanced training in marksmanship, they can then pass on that knowledge to beginning and aspiring competitors.
Competitive marksmanship is a big part of our mission! We invite you to join us at an upcoming match to further develop your marksmanship skills and, in many cases, earn recognition for doing so.

our commitment to Youth
Our vision is that every youth in America has the opportunity to participate in firearm safety and marksmanship programs. From hosting camps and clinics, to offering scholarships and opportunities to advance and improve marksmanship skills, we’re working hard to fulfill our vision every day!
The federal law that established the Civilian Marksmanship Program makes firearms safety one of its highest priorities. This law specifically states that a primary function of the CMP is “to instruct citizens of the United States in marksmanship; (and) to promote practice and safety in the use of firearms.” To fulfill this responsibility, the CMP produces a variety of safety materials.
