National Junior Olympic Program

The National Junior Olympic program hosts competitions year-round and throughout the country, making it accessible for all interested juniors. Junior shooters can participate in state qualifier competitions sanctioned by USA Shooting for the chance to receive an invitation to shoot at the National Junior Olympic Championships hosted by USA Shooting in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

The program serves as an important element of our pipeline development system in promoting the shooting sports. Goals of the Junior Olympic program are to provide national competitive experience for future development and to appoint the top finishers to the National Junior Team.

The National Junior Olympic Rifle & Pistol program runs from fall to early spring, with the NJOSC held in April. The National Junior Olympic Shotgun program runs from late spring to mid-summer, with the NJOSC held in June.
