I. GENERAL INFORMATION

NRA INTERCOLLEGIATE PISTOL SECTIONALS

A. General Match Information for Pistol Sectionals

Each Sectional Tournament is conducted by a local sponsor who provides the facilities and personnel as a service to the teams and individuals who participate. Sectionals are registered matches and guidelines for registered matches will be followed.

Since these are indoor tournaments and shooting conditions are almost identical for each, it is possible to conduct them at a number of locations throughout the country. Teams may select the most conveniently located Sectional to attend. A list of Sectionals is listed in the Coming Events section of the SHOOTING SPORTS USA online magazine each month. Details regarding a Sectional are to be obtained directly from the local sponsor. http://www.nrapublications.org/index.php/shooting-sports-usa/

Teams and individuals may fire in multiple Intercollegiate Sectionals of each type per year (Air Pistol, Free Pistol, Standard Pistol, Women’s Air Pistol, and Women's Sport Pistol). A competitor may fire either on a varsity or club team or on an ROTC team.

A National Bulletin that lists every score fired in an Intercollegiate Sectional will be available to each competitor. Every eligible team is encouraged to take part in the Sectionals as they are an excellent training field for beginning teams and a proving ground for experienced ones.

The NRA provides an Official Referee when possible. NRA also provides awards for Sectional

Tournaments. The tournament host provides the range facilities, personnel, and targets.

The Match Director may require that any or all fired targets from any Sectional be sent to

NRA Headquarters for rescoring.

All fired targets must be retained until the challenge period for the Final Results Bulletin has ended, which is two weeks after the bulletin has been posted.

Only a single team from an institution may represent that institution. ROTC Teams must declare before the qualifying Sectional whether they are attempting to qualify for either the National Open Collegiate Pistol Championship or the National ROTC Championship.

B. Match Conditions

Rules: All scores to be recognized as Sectional scores must be fired under the 2016 NRA Int'l Pistol Rules that are used throughout the 2016-2017 academic season. NRA National Sectional ranking will be determined from the NRA Int'l Pistol Rule Book by applying eligibility and tie breaking rules to all Sectional scores. All sponsors, match staff, coaches and competitors are responsible for knowing and abiding by the NRA Rules. http://www.competitions.nra.org/official-nra-rule-books.aspx

Eligibility: NRA Rule 2.8 applies in that Intercollegiate Sectional matches are open to individuals and teams whose members represent any one college, junior college or university, provided each member is eligible for participation in intercollegiate competition under the rules of the institution.

*For purposes of NRA Intercollegiate Sectionals/Nationals ONLY: a collegian may compete for a maximum of four years during their undergraduate career.  Collegians must be full-time during the semesters in which they compete.  If a collegian goes to graduate school directly after graduation from undergraduate school, and has one, or more, year(s) of eligibility left, the


graduate student may compete (and complete their four years of eligibility) in their first year of graduate school.

No student may compete in the Intercollegiate Sectional Program for more than four separate calendar years.

Students enrolled at any of the United States Service Academies may not compete in the ROTC category in this program.

Only NRA members are eligible for NRA National Records. For reference, a complete reading of rule 2.8 is as follows:

Regularly enrolled undergraduate students who carry 12 or more semester hours or the equivalent

in an accredited two or four-year collegiate level institution and who have not received a Bachelor’s Degree. Eligibility to compete as a collegian shall extend for a maximum of four years within a five-year period beginning when a student first attends any class as a full-time (12 or more credit hours) student. The five-year period may only be interrupted by extended military service. (60 consecutive days or more), service with a recognized foreign aid agency of the U.S. Government or certified missionary service.

In order for scores from a Sectional to be recognized for NRA Sectional Awards there must be teams and individuals entered in the Sectional concerned from at least two eligible institutions.

The NRA must receive completed sectional paperwork, and scorecards by Thursday, February 16th. Please do not wait to submit your scorecards.   SUBMIT YOUR SCORECARDS IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE SECTIONAL ENDS.

Intercollegiate Sectional scorecards received after the 16th will be ineligible for Championship qualification. Please submit completed scorecards in a timely fashion. Please submit payment as soon as possible, if it does not accompany the scores.  

Please note: it is the responsibility of each competitor to make sure that their scorecard/s are legible and complete. Illegible and incomplete scorecards will be ENTERED LAST, IF AT ALL.

Date of Sectionals: Sectionals are conducted between January 1 and February 12, 2017 as the local sponsor chooses. See Coming Events in SHOOTING SPORTS USA online for Sectional locations and dates. http://www.nrapublications.org/index.php/shooting-sports-usa/

Entries: Complete the entry form and mail with the correct remittance to your Sectional sponsor, not the

NRA Headquarters.

Entry Closing Date: All entries should be made two weeks prior to the Sectional that competitors elect to enter. If range space is available, post entries may be accepted by the tournament sponsor.

Equipment: All equipment used in these matches must be in accordance with NRA Int'l Pistol Rules. Please note: in 2017, specialized shooting shoes may be worn.

Coaching: No coaching on the firing line is allowed. Rule 9.10 & 12.2.

Ties: Ties will be broken by the method prescribed in Section 15 of the NRA Int'l Pistol Rules for NRA Sectionals awards and ranking for national bulletin (Air and Free Pistol - 15.3, 15.7(a), Standard Pistol and Women's Sport Pistol - 15.4, 15.7(b)). Please be familiar with these rules.

Challenges: Competitors may challenge the value of doubtful shot holes in accordance with procedures detailed in Section 16 of the NRA Int'l Pistol Rules. Challenge fees are determined by the


Sectional sponsor.

Souvenir: To each firing competitor, team, team captain, and match staff in the Sectional Tournaments, souvenir pins will be awarded to recognize their participation in the NRA Intercollegiate Sectional Championships.

National Sectional Bulletin: Official Collegiate Results Bulletin will be available online as soon as scores are compiled. The bulletin will list all scores fired in the 2017 NRA Intercollegiate Sectionals. There will be a separate listing of the All-American Teams, results of the NCAA Rifle Championships, the NRA Intercollegiate Rifle Club Championships, the NRA Intercollegiate Pistol Championships and the ACUI Clay target Championships. The ranking of the national scores will become final two weeks after the posting of the official bulletin. All challenges and protests regarding the findings in the official bulletin must be filed with the National Rifle Association before the two weeks have elapsed.
