The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) recently announced that the Talladega Marksmanship Park is hosting the inaugural American Marksman National Championship on January 6-8, 2017.

American Marksman is for amateurs only. Participants compete and advance through three levels: local, regional and national. The exciting conclusion will be televised on the Outdoor Channel, with the Talladega Marksmanship Park serving as the backdrop.

The top competitors from the nine designated Regional Championships, including Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Rocky Mountain and Southwest, are eligible to compete in the National Championship. Competitors are split into one of four divisions of their choosing: Men’s Open, Women’s Open, Military/Law Enforcement and Juniors.

The Course of Fire for the national event at Talladega will not be released until competitors arrive at the venue. Eligible participants will receive a sheet outlining a list of skills to practice during the fall leading up to the match. The champion will be awarded a check for $50,000, a prize package and the honor of being named the first American Marksman.
