NDSSA Junior Match Support Policy

One of the major objectives of the North Dakota Shooting Sports Association is to promote and foster junior shooting programs and junior shooters across the state.  Many of our junior shooters excel and reach the next level to compete nationally in their discipline.  This policy outlines NDSSA financial support of North Dakota resident juniors attending National Championship Matches.


  • Athletes are considered juniors until Dec. 31st of the year they turn 20 years old.

  • Juniors must be residents of North Dakota as defined in the NDSSA constitution.

Use of Funding

  • These funds are to be used for match entry fees and travel expenses.

Level of Funding

  • Juniors are eligible to receive funding to one event per year.

  • On an annual basis the NDSSA board will determine of the total amount of funding available and individual limit for the upcoming year.  A recommendation put forth and approved by vote at the NDSSA Annual Membership meeting.

 Funded Championships
