As mentioned, the NRA will begin online registration for the 2024 NRA World Shooting Championship at 1:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, December 6.

Competitors may register as an individual in either the Professional or Amateur divisions. A Professional is defined as an “individual who receives financial support over $2,000 per year in products, cash or services in support of competitive shooting participation. A Professional is also any competitor who has placed in the ‘top five’ of the Amateur Category in any previous NRA World Shooting Championship.” As for the Amateur definition, that is “anyone who does not meet the definition of the ‘Professional.’”

Competitors who are planning to attend the NRA World Shooting Championship in 2024 are encouraged to secure their spot as soon as registration opens, because the match has filled quickly in previous years.

Upon the opening of registration at 1:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, December 6, competitors must fully complete registration via the NRA Shooters Portal. Note that if you have not already created a profile, you will be required to do prior to registering for the 2024 NRA World Shooting Championship.
