Volunteer and event support applications for the 2022 NRA National Matches at Camp Atterbury, Indiana, are now open. Chief Range Officers, Line Officers, Range Crew and Administrative Staff are needed at the National High Power Rifle Championships, National Precision Pistol Championships and National Smallbore Rifle Championships.

There is no other range in the United States like Camp Atterbury, and the NRA National Matches are truly a unique experience. We need your help with running the ranges, keeping statistical records and more.

Match staff are people like you who are interested in the shooting sports and willing to devote their time and energy to promote this outstanding event. At this competition, you will see some of the finest competitive shooters displaying some of the best marksmanship in the country.

  • Precision Pistol—July 16-24
  • Smallbore Rifle 3-P—July 24-30
