MARS is competitive shooting league comprised of various participating clubs in the mid-atlantic region. The intent is to create a fun series that’s both easy-going and exciting to promote camaraderie within the local, Mid Atlantic shooting community. MARS will collect scores from match directors after each event and track totals throughout the season, culminating in a finale.

How it Works

Anyone can attend and/or shoot any match for fun. But to participate in the MARS points competition, competitors must purchase a membership in the MARS Store to receive a MARS Membership Number. Series points will be tracked using MARS Membership numbers.


You get a match score for each match in which you compete. Match scores will be converted to series points, based on the percentage of their match score as compared to their specific division’s match winner.

To qualify for the Series Finale, competitors must shoot MARS matches at four (4) different participating clubs. The top scores from each of those 4 clubs will added together in the Series Points Leaderboard. Invitations to the Finale will be in order of series points standings at the end of the season.

To become Series Champion, series points earned from the shooter’s top scores four (4) different clubs will be added with score earned at the Finale. The highest series points will be declared the Champion.

There will be a Series Champion for each division: Bolt, Semi-Auto and Junior (Age 15 and younger).

Also, we would appreciate it if you do business with our sponsors and tell them we sent you.


We are have a bunch of wonderful sponsors that donate prizes. BUT we don’t want this series to be about getting prize. We want it to be about the love of the sport, camaraderie and bragging rights. Series Champions in each division will take home the coveted MARS trophies. All prized will be distributed by random drawing at every match and at the finale.
