Juniors: Earn Valuable Marksmanship Training at the 2024 National Matches

0 5

CAMP PERRY, Ohio – Each year, the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) hosts the century-old National Matches, set to again fire July 11-Aug. 10, 2024, at the historic Camp Perry National Guard Training Site in Port Clinton, Ohio.

Along with a variety of competitions, the CMP facilitates several educational opportunities for adults and juniors, including the popular CMP Junior Highpower Clinic.

The three-day clinic focuses on more advanced training outside of fundamentals, including weather conditions, how to read wind, equipment use, shooting positions and rulebook standards. Juniors in the clinic spend a half day in the classroom, followed by dry-firing on Petrarca Range and two days of live-fire at 200, 300 and 600 yards. Those youth athletes who would like to attend this clinic must first attend the Rifle Small Arms Firing School.

Training is led by certified CMP personnel, highly trained civilian marksmen and women and military instructors. Juniors will receive one-on-one coaching during live-fire days – a new feature for 2024.

Learn more about the Junior Highpower Clinic and other educational offerings at the National Matches on the CMP website at https://thecmp.org/cmp-national-matches/clinics/.
