Civilian Marksmanship Program today on Oahu

The top high school marksmen from across the state will compete for the coveted state crown in the 11th Annual Civilian Marksmanship Program/HHSAA State Championships, Tuesday, Oct. 27, at the Neal Blaisdell Center Exhibition Hall.  This year’s field has been reduced to from 60 competitors to 42 marksmen, making qualification into the state tournament competitive for each league’s participants. 


While there is some variation among the leagues on team size and selection processes to the state championship, all utilize the sporter air rifle in 3-position competition.  Precision air rifles are not allowed.  League competition, with the exception of Maui, is primarily team-based with an individual championship ending the season.

 The HHSAA championship is one of two in the U.S. that are sanctioned by the high school athletic governing body. Georgia is the only other state with a sanctioned championship.

 Shooters fire 20 record shots in each position – prone, standing and kneeling.  A perfect score is 600.  Teams are made up of four firing members from the same school.

Civilian Marksmanship Program:

It is the mission of the Civilian Marksmanship Program to promote firearm safety and marksmanship training with special emphasis on youths.  For more information on CMP, log on to www.odcmp.com.
