Orion's National Air Rifle League

Orion's National Air Rifle League

Orion's National Air Rifle League creates a bold new competition format, allowing teams to compete virtually in a low-cost, yet meaningful national competition for both elite and developing teams. Teams compete against teams of their own relative skill level in a round robin style format during the 8 week regular season, beginning on 26 September, with the league culminating in a single-elimination tournament at the end of the season for the top 8 teams.

For more information on the main league download the complete National Air Rifle League Program.

Description

The League is structured into disciplines, conferences, divisions, teams, seasons, and games. The two disciplines are Sporter air rifle and Precision air rifle. The Sporter discipline is made up of five conferences these are (1) Army JROTC, (2) Marine Corps JROTC, (3) Navy JROTC, (4) Air Force JROTC, and (5) Jr. Rifle Clubs. The Precision discipline has two conferences; these are (1) JROTC and (2) Jr. Rifle Clubs. A conference can have multiple divisions of teams. A division is ideally a group of 8 teams of relatively equal skill level that compete against each other in games. A team consists of four or more air rifle athletes with a coach from a single school or club. A game is one competition between two teams. A complete season has three parts, a pre-season optional tournament, an eight week six or seven game regular season, and a three week single-elimination tournament for the top teams. During the regular season, teams compete only against the other teams from within their division.

Teams are organized into divisions, within a conference, according to their relative and historic skill levels. The division names (from highest to lowest), are Champions, Distinguished, Elite, Governor, Leaders, Master, Premier, Sharpshooter, Tops, and Wizards. The number of divisions within a conference will depend on the number of competing teams. During the regular season, teams compete against other teams in their division in a series of win-loss games. The winner of the division is the team with the highest number of wins.

In the Sporter Discipline there are two postseason tournaments, the Championship Tournament which determines the league winner and the Invitational Tournament. The Invitational Tournament was added to allow more deserving teams participate in the postseason. In the Precision Discipline there is a single Championship Tournament to determine the league winner. All tournaments are single-elimination. Invitations to the tournaments are described in the postseason section below.

Teams will compete each week from their home range. Scores from each team will be merged on the Internet using Orion's Virtual Match technology. Results will be listed live online on Orion's Result Center.

To create year to year parity within Divisions, teams are squadded into Divisions based on their performance from last year. The Champions Division, in all conferences, is made up of the top performing teams from last year's league. It consists of the top four teams from the previous season's Champions Division, and the top two teams from the Distinguished Division. Teams entering the league for the first time, who have exceptional historic scores may be placed in the Champions Division as well. All other Divisions are squadded based on their previous year's seasonal average. New teams will be squadded based on results from well known competitions.
