A CMP-sanctioned match or clinic is an event hosted or sponsored by a CMP affiliated organization where match sponsors agree to use CMP Competition Rules in conducting their events and clinic sponsors agree to follow CMP standards for the conduct of clinics. CMP-Sanctioned Matches or Clinics may be offered for M1 Garand, Springfield, Vintage Military, Rimfire Sporter, M1 Carbine, Unlimited Garand or Modern Military. Please read the Instructions to Conduct a CMP Sanctioned Match or Clinic prior to completing the application.
New in 2019, clubs may register their match and/or clinic using our Online Match Sanctioning.
The CMP affiliated clubs sanctioned 120 marksmanship clinics last year and trained an estimated 1,000 new shooters in 2013. If your club has a GSM Master Instructor teaching the sanctioned clinic, CMP will provide training curriculum for these sanctioned clinics. If your club is interested in attending a GSM Master Instructor course, please click here.
Once your club submits the application form and clinic program to hold a Sanctioned Clinic, the application and program will be reviewed by our Competitions Department. Once it is approved, the CMP will post information about your clinic in the Upcoming Events listing on the CMP website. The CMP also offers ammunition for use in the clinic at discounted prices and a certificate of Achievement to distribute to participants.
