Registration Policy

Competitor Entry Forms are available under the download section on the right side of this page and in the May issue of the Tactical Journal.

Participants: All entrants must be current IDPA members with a classification of Marksman or higher and have at least one point.

Participant Eligibility: Entries must be POSTMARKED OR SHIPPED (NOT RECEIVED) NO EARLIER than May 25th, 2018.
Any entries received prior to this date will not be considered for squadding until August 1st and only if there are openings left. SEND ENTRIES TO: IDPA CHAMPIONSHIP, 2232 CR 719, Berryville, Arkansas 72616.

Limited to 290 entries based on accumulated points.

Ask that your match director makes sure to upload results to IDPA website in the format that includes your IDPA number so you get credit toward the points system to attend the IDPA National Championship.

Points System
Points will be accumulated from May 31, 2017 through May 30, 2018. The points will be awarded based on participation at sanctioned matches whose results have been uploaded to IDPA HQ or as noted below. Clubs that hold matches in the last two weeks of May should have their results uploaded to IDPA HQ no later than June 3, 2018.

The Points:
• Tier 2 matches are worth 1 point
• Tier 3 matches are worth 2 points
• Tier 4 matches are worth 3 points
• Tier 5 matches (US and Indoor Nationals only) are worth 4 points
• Match Directors of sanctioned matches in this year or the previous earn 1 point
• The club contacts listed on the IDPA website as of May 31, 2017, earns 1 point

How slots will be awarded:
• We will fill the first 200 openings using the Points System.
• 50 openings will then be filled by random drawing of all the remaining shooters who did not get a slot using their points. This will allow shooter in areas not featuring frequent sanctioned matches to have an opportunity to attend.
• 30 openings will be reserved for International Shooters and will be awarded by random drawing; any international shooters who do not receive a slot via this method will be entered into the random drawing for the 50 openings mentioned above.
• These numbers do not include IDPA Staff and SOs as they do not take up any of the slots on Thur, Fri or Sat.

On July 11th, all slots will be awarded and the competitors notified that week.

You will choose your own squad. We will send notification via email to let you know when and where to go for self squadding. To self squad, you will need to sign in using the same username and password you use for the Members Only Area. Sign up now for the Members Only Area if you plan to submit an entry form for the National Championship.

Be sure to double check your information before sending in your entry forms. There will be NO changes allowed in division once we receive the entry form.
