Civilian Marksmanship ProgramClubsClub-Sanctioned Clinics and Matches

What is a sanctioned clinic or match?

A CMP-sanctioned clinic or match is hosted or sponsored by a CMP-affiliated organization where match sponsors agree to use CMP Competition Rules in conducting their events, and clinic sponsors agree to follow CMP standards for the conduct of clinics. 

If you have questions or need additional information, please contact the CMP Competition Support staff at (419) 635-2141, ext. 706 or

How to apply to sanction a match or clinic

Clubs may register their match and/or clinic using our Online Match Sanctioning (Note: You must have a Competition Tracker login to access this feature). Forms may also be downloaded from the Competitions Forms Index.

Once your club submits the application form and clinic program to hold a Sanctioned Clinic, the application and program will be reviewed by our Competitions Department.

Once it is approved, the CMP will post information about your clinic in the Upcoming Events listing on the CMP website.

The CMP also offers ammunition for use in the clinic at discounted prices and a certificate of Achievement to distribute to participants.

Is a GSM Master Instructor teaching your sanctioned clinic?

If your club has a GSM Master Instructor teaching the sanctioned clinic, CMP will provide training curriculum for these sanctioned clinics.
