The week-to-week competition is a part of the Precision Champions Division of the Orion National Air Rifle League. Sponsored by the Orion Scoring System, the league is a national team league for high school teams and junior rifle clubs. The Champions Division has two parts: An eight-week regular season followed by a single-elimination tournament for the top eight teams.
In each game the teams compete in what is known as a Standing air rifle match. The match is nearly identical to the air rifle events in the Olympic Games. Each athlete shoots 40 shots in the standing position, the most difficult position in rifle competitions. Each shot is worth a maximum of 10.9 points. The sum of points scored in the 40 shots is the athlete’s total. The team score is comprised of the best four athletes from each team.
