National Air Rifle League

The 2023 National Air Rifle League

League Description

Orion's National Air Rifle League is THE LARGEST Air Rifle league in the world! Over 160 teams competed in 2021 alone. The League is meant for both developing and elite teams, and there are separate divisions for Sporter and Precision. 

The Sporter discipline is made up of five conferences: (1) Army JROTC, (2) Marine Corps JROTC, (3) Navy JROTC, (4) Air Force / Space Force JROTC, and (5) Jr. Rifle Clubs. The Precision Discipline has two conferences: (1) JROTC and (2) Jr. Rifle Clubs. The Precision conference has two divisions, Champions and Distinguished, while the Sport conference has three divisions, Champions, Distinguished and Elite. Teams are placed into their respective divisions based on performance in previous competitions.

The Air Rifle League is governed by the National Standard Three-Position Air Rifle Rules.
