About the Tennessee Shooting Sports Association
The TNSSA is an educational non-profit organization affiliated with the National Rifle Association (NRA) and Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP). The TNSSA governing documents are the bylaws. A Board of Directors, elected by the general membership, governs the organization. The Board of Directors elects the President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and Membership Officer from members of the Board of Directors. A member of the Board of Directors acts as the Director for each of the NRA shooting disciplines. This member approves club applications to host the State Championship in each discipline.

As the Tennessee affiliate of the NRA and CMP, TNSSA works to further the goals and mission of both organizations through education and active participation in the shooting sports, junior training and gun ownership. The TNSSA serves as the sanctioning body for the Tennessee State Championship in each NRA competitive shooting discipline preserving the legitimacy and honor associated with such tournaments. The TNSSA provides awards for sanctioned State Championships.

The NRA competitive shooting disciplines sanctioned are:

  • Air Rifle
  • BB
