Shooters can compete as many times as they would like on the designated dates of the event, by shooting Singles events at ATA Registered Shoots. For individuals, the high score shot during this time frame will be chosen for each AIM member as the competition score, which will be compiled from shoot reports. For Team Trophies, squads are only eligible when five shooters have shot together at the same time and location. Mixed zone squads are not eligible for team trophies.

For the AIM Online Zone Championship, shooters may shoot outside of their home zone, but individual awards will only be given from their home zone, not from the zone where they shot. In order to avoid minimum Singles Class B penalty, AIM competitors must have shot at least 200 Registered Singles targets in the current target year prior to the AIM Online Zone Championship.

FOR THIS EVENT, ALL AIM COMPETITORS WILL BE CLASSIFIED AS OF MAY 12, 2017.

PARTICIPATION IN THE AIM ONLINE ZONE CHAMPIONSHIP IS REQUIRED IN ORDER TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR ANY OF THE AIM ANNUAL TEAMS.

Scores & Score Submission
Individual scores for the AIM Online Zone Championship do not need to be submitted. Scores are pulled automatically from shoot reports as long as the shooter’s AIM payment is current and they competed at a registered event. When an ATA Singles event consists of more than 100 targets, the total score for this event will be averaged. Scores that are not whole numbers will be rounded up.

Scores for squads must be submitted using the AIM Coaches Area. Please follow the link below to register your team and get started.
