NRA Intercollegiate Rifle and Pistol Sectionals

ADDENDUM: An Intercollegiate competitor may compete in more than one sectional per year, per discipline, in order to attempt to qualify for the nationals. Intercollegiate teams may only compete once.

The National Rifle Association’s Intercollegiate Sectionals provide the opportunity for individuals and teams to compete with many collegiate shooters across the nation and to compare their marksmanship performance by being nationally ranked.

Sectional tournaments are registered indoor matches conducted at numerous locations throughout the country. Competitors may select the most convenient location from the sectionals listed in the “Coming Events” section of Shooting Sports USA. Complete information regarding the sectionals may be obtained from the NRA or from the event sponsor. Competitors may fire any of the collegiate sectional events: smallbore rifle, air rifle, standard pistol, air pistol, sport pistol.

Due to popular demand, we have added one Pistol Side Match: Rapid Fire Pistol.

After firing, scores are sent to NRA where they are nationally ranked and any national records are recorded. All Intercollegiate Sectional scores must be fired under NRA International Style Pistol Rules, NRA Smallbore Rifle Rules, and/or NRA Precision Air Rifle Position Rules. When all tournaments have been fired and entered in the NRA database, a national results bulletin is compiled online, listing every score for that year’s sectional matches.
