Join us July 26-28, 2024

One of the most popular CMP youth marksmanship clinics during the National Matches is the CMP Highpower Rifle Clinic. Many juniors participate in highpower service rifle shooting, usually as members of state association junior highpower teams. This clinic is offered at Camp Perry, Ohio, just prior to the National Trophy Rifle Matches.

The CMP Junior Highpower Clinic combines real classroom instruction with live fire range practice.

The clinic is open to junior highpower rifle shooters who have previous service rifle competition experience and are classified as a Sharpshooter or higher. Juniors who are new to highpower rifle shooting are required to attend a Rifle Small Arms Firing School first before registering for the CMP Junior Highpower Clinic.

Participants in the clinic must bring their own rifles, ammunition and shooting equipment. There will be no ammunition issued for the clinic.

About the Clinic 

The three-day clinic focuses on more advanced training outside of fundamentals, including weather conditions, how to read wind, equipment use, shooting positions and rulebook standards. Juniors in the clinic spend a half day in the classroom, followed by dry-firing on Petrarca Range and two days of live-fire at 200, 300 and 600 yards. Those youth athletes who would like to attend this clinic must first attend the Rifle Small Arms Firing School.

Training is led by certified CMP personnel, highly trained civilian marksmen and women and military instructors. Juniors will receive one-on-one coaching during live-fire days – a new feature for 2024.

The clinic will conclude in time for all clinic students to participate in the Squadded Practice. All students will receive a CMP Junior Highpower Rifle Clinic T-shirt, certificate and school handout materials.

Note: The CMP Junior Highpower Clinic will not include a Rifle EIC match. If juniors with no EIC points are interested in earning “introductory” EIC points, they should attend the Rifle Small Arms Firing School.
