How do I sign up for the IDPA National Championship or World Championship match?
Early every summer IDPA HQ will put the match information and application online. Each national or world championship match is limited to a set number of participants and spots are awarded to the number of points the shooter has accumulated. Points are awarded from June 1 through May 31 of the next year.
Points are awarded based on participation at sanctioned matches, using the following system:
- Tier 2 matches are worth 1 point
- Tier 3 matches are worth 2 points
- Tier 4 matches are worth 3 points
- Tier 5 matches (Worlds, US and Indoor Nationals only) are worth 4 points
- Match Directors of sanctioned matches earn 1 point
- Club contacts listed on the IDPA website as of May 31, 2023, will earn 1 point
The IDPA National and World Championship matches are open to current IDPA members with a classification of Marksman or higher.
For any additional questions about the process, please contact your Area Coordinator.
