Champion Collegiate Recruiting

High school rifle athletes have many options available to compete at the collegiate level which include the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) and the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA).

In the highly competitive world of collegiate sports, you need to set yourself apart and give yourself the best opportunity to get the attention of college coaches. Many student-athletes are talented and have the ability to play sports in college yet are never discovered thus missing out on the opportunity of playing at the next level. Here at Champion Collegiate Recruiting, we partner with you and champion your recruiting cause by displaying to college coaches the recruitable player you are. 

Don't wait to get discovered - help them discover you!

Recruiting Tip
What events (PPP Air, Precision Standing, Sporter Rifle, Smallbore, etc.) would you recommend your shooters compete in to prepare for college?
  • USA Shooting National Junior Olympic Championships, USAS National Championship junior events, some three position air and NO sporter unless limited or no access. We need athletes accomplished in both guns now.
  • All shooting is good; we know smallbore access is down among juniors, to have smallbore experience is a plus.
  • What is available will be the big thing. Three position air is fine, although it does not always correlate to three position smallbore. Precision standing matches offer the best information for projecting the future in collegiate air rifle. Smallbore is great, not enough shooters have smallbore scores we can use.
  • I really don’t look that much into three position air rifle. I look more for athletes that shoot both smallbore and air rifle. If they shoot three position and have good standing, then I am more apt to look in that direction.
  • Shoot as many events as possible, try to work into smallbore if at all possible. Sporter will be “kind of ” looked at. I know most kids in JROTC shoot that because it’s the only thing available, but I don’t know how serious they are if that’s as far as they are willing to invest in the sport.
  • I think all of the above will get them ready to compete in college. The sporter is not the best as they get into their sophomore year in high school or later but it is a good place to start young. It really varies from kid to kid depending on their skills and work
    ethic. Most of the time I like recruits to have plenty of precision air and three position smallbore experience, yet we have had some great success with limited smallbore but a lot of three position air shooters.
  • We are happy with them shooting anything.
  • Since three position smallbore and precision standing are the two events in collegiate competition, they are top priority for preparing a junior shooter for college. Because of the number of competitions available thru American Legion, CMP, high schools, NRA and USA Shooting, the three position air at the precision level is also quite valuable. Many of us look mainly at the standing scores, multiplied by three to get a feel for how they would score in a collegiate event.
