2015 USA Shooting Junior Olympics Georgia State Championship Final Results

Congratulations to all the participants. It looks like there will be a large group of Georgia athletes invited to the national Junior Olympics! Individual award medals provided by USA Shooting will be distributed soon.

Endowment Awards For Teams

New this year, I worked with the Georgia Youth Shooting Sports Foundation and they have generously arranged for team endowment awards and optional round up matching awards. We are most appreciative of the GYSSF support of youth target shooting programs in Georgia.

– Medalist Awards For Teams

The GYSSF will donate and deposit awards totaling $13,500 to MidwayUSA Foundation accounts for benefit of teams as designated by each of the individual medalists in six of the JO events.

Events earning awards are women’s air rifle, smallbore rifle, and air pistol, along with men’s air rifle, smallbore rifle, and air pistol. No awards are available for women’s and men’s sport pistol this year. Awards for those two events may be added in future years if state‐wide participation grows sufficiently.

Award amounts for each of the six events are: gold $1,000, silver $750, and bronze $500.

I will be contacting each medalist with additional information.

– Round Up Matching Opportunities

Each team designated by the medalists will also have the opportunity to earn additional matching funds from GYSSF, if they so choose. These are one‐to‐one matching funds, which could total $22,500, that will be available to teams that chose to raise additional funds prior to September 15, 2015. The minimum amount that must be raised to qualify for this program is $1,000. Maximum amount for matching is: gold $1,000, silver $1,250, and bronze $1,500.

Note that GYSSF may have additional matching opportunities not related to the JO. Teams may participate in both. This JO matching is guaranteed to be available, while other opportunities depend on funds availability.

I will be contacting each designated team’s coach with additional information.

Thank You!

Thank you to all the athletes, coaches, parents, and match staff for participating in the state Junior Olympics program this year.  Have a great year!

Georgia – State Junior Olympics – CMP Three Position Air Rifle JO State Championship

Print

The sites and dates for the 2015 CMP Three Position Air Rifle Junior Olympics Georgia State Championship have been announced.

Once again, we will have three sites for the state qualifiers.

South – Sat-Sun 11-12 Apr 2015 – Waycross, GA
Match Director: Maurice England
Match Program: Download TBD

Central – Fri-Sat 24-25 Apr 2015 – Griffin, GA
Match Director: Lisa Kelley
Match Program: Download from here

North – Sat 28 Mar 2015 – Dahlonega, GA
Match Director: JP O’Connor
Match Program: Download from here

The Central location will use paper targets scored with Orion, while the South and North locations will use electronic targets.

Host sites, match director names and contact information may be found in the CMP competition search web page or directly at this link. Note this one link is for all locations. See the contact information for each location at the top of the listing. (Central location information not available yet on that site.)

Contact the appropriate Match Director to obtain a match program and other information for the South location, and at the download links above for the Central and North locations. Registration is via mail to each location.

Send in your entry early. Prime relays fill up early, especially at the North location.

These events are qualifiers for the national events and are EIC points eligible. Hosted and run by the CMP, the National Junior Olympic 3P Air Rifle Championship is a very popular program involving thousands of three position air rifle athletes (sporter and precision) from all over the country.

Qualifying for either of the CMP national events allows the team or individual to compete in BOTH CMP championships: the JO event mentioned above and the CMP National  3P Air Rifle Championship. Both events usually include generous cash prizes.

Because many athletes are only involved in 3P air rifle, they are unaware of the Olympic events and the USA Shooting Junior Olympics discussed here. They should participate in both programs if shooting precision air rifle.
