The 2016-2017 JROTC Postal Competition officially opened in September. The program is for young cadets in Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force JROTC programs who are interested in competing in this 3-P air rifle match with other talented juniors across the nation. Last year, over 7,000 juniors competed in the match that serves as the first step on the road to Nationals.

To compete, registered participants will each receive three targets and instructions for recording scores. Shooters will fire in each of the three positions (prone, standing, kneeling) at their home rangesusing one target for each position. Once record shots are fired, shooters will return the targets to CMP for scoring.

CMP staff members will verify scores using the Orion Visual Image Scoring system. Results will be posted within Competition Tracker for teams and individuals to check during the postal season.

As in years past, Larry and Brenda Potterfield, co-founders of the MidwayUSA Corporation, donated to the winning teams of the JROTC Championships.
