The sites and dates for the 2014-2015 USA Shooting Georgia State Rifle & Pistol Junior Olympics Championship have been announced.
Once again, we will have three sites for the state qualifiers. As with last year, I will also serve as the state coordinator, collecting results and sending out the medals.

Contact the appropriate Match Director to obtain a match program and other information. Host sites, match director names and contact information may be found in the “2014-2015 Rifle/Pistol State Junior Olympic Host Sites!!” spreadsheet link on the USA Shooting National Junior Olympic Program page, along with additional general information.
Send in your entry early. Prime relays fill up early, especially at the North location.
Renew your USA Shooting membership online, or join online right away so you have your membership number, as required on the JO entry forms.
If you cannot compete in one of the events in Georgia, you may compete as a non-resident in any other state’s event to potentially earn an automatic or at-large invitation. Find a host site that is convenient for you and make contact.
