The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) is gearing up to host the 2022-2023 JROTC Three-Position Postal Competition, with registration beginning at the end of September. The national event is open to all high school junior cadets in Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force JROTC programs who are interested in competing with other young athletes from around the country.
Organized and facilitated by the CMP, the JROTC Three-Position event is jointly conducted by the U.S. Army Cadet Command, TECOM (Training & Education Command), the Naval Service Training Command and AFOATS (Air Force Officer Accession and Training Schools).
To compete, registered sporter and precision air rifle participants receive three targets and instructions for recording scores. Individuals then fire in three positions (prone, standing, kneeling) at their home ranges – using one target for each position. Once record shots are fired, athletes return targets to CMP for scoring through the use of the Orion Visual Image Scoring system.
