2017 – Georgia – State Junior Olympics – CMP Three Position Air Rifle JO State Championship

Print

The sites and dates for the 2017 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 15 Apr 2017 – Waycross, GA
Match Director: Maurice England
Match Program: Download TBD

Central – Fri-Sat 07-08 Apr 2017 – Griffin, GA
Match Director: Lisa Kelley
Match Program: Download TBD

North – Sun 26 Mar 2017 – 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 there is one match entry for all three locations and dates. See the contact information for each location at the top of the match listing.

Contact the appropriate Match Director to obtain a match program and other information for the South & Central locations, and at the download link above for the North location. 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. (CMP broke the link – awaiting repair.)

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 very important USA Shooting Junior Olympics discussed here. They should participate in both programs if shooting precision air rifle.

2017 Georgia – State Junior Olympics – Rifle & Pistol

USAS JO Logo

The sites and dates for the 2016-2017 USA Shooting Georgia State Rifle & Pistol Junior Olympics Championship have been announced.

For the fourth year in a row, we will have three sites for the state qualifier competitions. I will again serve as the state coordinator, collecting state-wide results and sending out the award medals provided by USA Shooting.

South – Sat 28 Jan 2017 – Waycross, GA
Air Rifle, Air Pistol

Central – Fri-Sun 13-15 Jan 2017 – Griffin, GA
Air Rifle, Air Pistol, Smallbore Rifle (3×20)

North – Sat-Sun 14-15 Jan 2017 – Dahlonega, GA
Air Rifle, Air Pistol, Smallbore Rifle (3×20), Sport Pistol

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

You may download the North location Match Program & Entry Form for information and entry instructions. This program also has a complete explanation of all THREE ways to earn an invitation to the National Junior Olympic Shooting Championships in the spring along with updated at-large selection scores from last year.

Contact the appropriate Match Director for the South and Central locations to obtain a match program and other information. Host sites, match director names and contact information may be found in the “2016-2017 Rifle/Pistol State Junior Olympic Host Sites” spreadsheet link on the USA Shooting National Junior Olympic Program page, along with additional general information. (The list will be posted on that page some time on Fri 14 Oct 2016.)

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

Currently planned for 07-25 April 2017, the national dates and schedules for the three phases have not been published at this time. Dates and schedules will be published on the same USA Shooting page linked just above. It has been confirmed the phases will follow the 2016 sequence: Men’s Rifle, Women’s Rifle, Pistol.

Be sure to enter, even if you think that you are not “ready” for this competition. Many people were surprised the past two years when they earned an invitation! Others who were good enough missed out because they did not enter.

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.

Results – Georgia – State Junior Olympics – Rifle & Pistol

2014 State Shooting Pin

Georgia statewide results are now (Tue 27 Jan 2015) available for download.

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!
