Orion Virtual Match Series
Sadly, COVID-19 has left it difficult for many schools and teams to travel or compete in competitions, causing the cancellation of the 2020 National Air Rifle League. We continue to advocate for the sport and wish to facilitate teams who can compete an opportunity to do so. With this in mind, we are offering an opportunity for teams to compete from their home range using our exclusive Virtual Match technology - The Orion Virtual Match Air Rifle Series.
This is a series of bi-weekly air rifle matches from September to December. Any Orion customer may participate for free. Coaches may purchase participation awards ($3 each) separately. Each week Orion will publish a press release highlighting the top teams and individuals.
Each match will be a 3x10, scored in decimal, with categories for Sporter and Precision, governed by the National Three-Position Air Rifle Rules.Each team's score will be the sum of the four highest athletes. Each team may have an unlimited number of eligible athletes participate.
Each virtual match lasts two weeks, starting on a Monday and going the second Sunday. There will be six matches, beginning 14 September 2020 and ending 13 December 2020. There are no matches the week of Thanksgiving.
All eligible clubs and athletes under the National Three-Position Air Rifle Rules may participate. Each club must have an active Orion customer license. Each club may participate in each of the series matches. Teams and athletes may shoot each match only once. Clubs may participate in both the Sporter and Precision categories, but otherwise may not have multiple teams.
Each match will have to be signed up for independently (i.e. you have to sign up for each match you want to participate in).
