These two teams are competing in the National Air Rifle ‘New Shooter’ League. Sponsored by the Orion Scoring System, the league is a national team league that is exclusive to athletes in their first year of competition.

The league includes teams from high schools and junior rifle clubs throughout the United States. During 10 weeks, each team competes in eight games. Each week, each team is paired with another team with a near-equal skill level.

“In each game, the teams compete in what is known as a ‘Three-Position Air Rifle’ match. The match is modeled after Olympic Rifle competitions but adapted to high school age athletes,” Clark said.

Each athlete will shoot 10 shots in three different shooting positions — prone, standing and kneeling. Each shot is worth a maximum of 10.9 points. The sum of points scored in the 30 shots is the athlete’s total. The team score is comprised of the best four athletes’ results from each team.
