USA Shooting Announces 2021 Shotgun Junior Olympic State Host Applications Are Now Live

Colorado Springs, Colorado


Interested host sites can start the process of hosting Shotgun State Junior Olympics (JOs) for the year 2021 by filling out this form: 

All applications and match programs must be received by February 12, 2021. 

State hosts will be chosen based on geography, prior USAS involvement, club facilities and each club’s mission for grassroots development of the sport. One club or organization, who must be a current USAS member, within each state will be awarded the state JO host title. In some instances, due to state size, more than one location within a state will be awarded the title of state JO host.

All state Junior Olympic matches are to be held between Feb 26, 2021 and June 13, 2021. All clubs will be notified by email as to whether their application was selected or not.  

The National Junior Olympic Shotgun Championships will be taking place this summer in Hillsdale, Michigan from June 29 – July 7, 2021. Please note that the dates and location are subject to change. Match Directors must be SafeSport certified to host a JO.  

Coaches, and volunteers are also expected to complete the SafeSport training. To complete the training please see this guide:
