Score Reporting Forms (SR Cards)

Individual Score Reporting Forms (SR cards) are available for downloading in PDF format. Once downloaded, you may make as many copies as you need for the competitors in your tournament. These are only the part of the SR card that is submitted to the NRA.

Shooter Classification Check

Competitors in NRA Sanctioned Tournaments may check their current classification online. Enter your NRA ID number where indicated, click the "GO" button, and a list of the shooting programs you are currently active in will be shown with your current classification and effective date.

Obsolete Classifications

Since competitors may now check their classification on the NRA web site, we have had quite a few questions as to why a record is not found for them. The answer to most all of the questions is that they have not shot in an NRA Sanctioned Tournament or League for some years.

Rule 19.9 (Obsolete Classifications and Scores) states; "All classifications and scores (including temporary, Rule 19.14) except Master, shall become obsolete if the competitor does not fire in NRA competition at least once during 3 successive calendar years. Master classifications and scores shall become obsolete if the competitor does not fire in NRA competition at least once during 5 successive calendar years. Lifetime Master classifications will not become obsolete."

Scores Used for Individual Classification

We receive many questions as to the use of fired team scores for classification. Rule 19.4 states in part that "all scores fired in NRA sanctioned individual and team competitions" are used for classification purposes.

Email Tournament Reporting

Although we cannot, at this time, accept score reports electronically, we will continue to accept, by regular mail, computer generated score reports from tournament sponsors in place of SR cards. However, we have been receiving reports that were not usable and had to be returned to the sponsor for correction before scores could be posted the competitors. Type size is important as it must be easily read by our data entry operators. A minimum of a 10 point font must be used. SR cards may be still used. Sponsors are still required to send not only the scores for each competitor, but a fee report form with the appropriate fees. Currently, this cannot be done with e-mail.

Only the following information is required for each competitor (preferable in the order listed). Anything more only slows down the posting process.

  • NRA ID number (if available)
  • Complete name and address of competitor
  • Total record shots fired (do not include sighting shots)
  • Total aggregate score for the tournament or league (no averages)
  • If fired team match; shots fired and score.

Copies of result bulletins are not acceptable for score posting.

If you have any questions, email the Tournament Reporting Department at tournrpts@nrahq.org.
