The American Legion conducts a Junior Three Position Air Rifle Tournament, which provides the shooters with an opportunity to test their marksmanship ability in competition with other junior shooters from throughout the nation.
The tournament has three phases of competition:
- State Championships
- Qualification Round
- National Championships
Both the state and qualification phases of the tournament are postal matches whereas the National Championship is a shoulder-to-shoulder competition. The State Championships and the Qualification Round will be conducted in accordance with the Official Match Program (OMP) and NRA Position Air Rifle Rules.
