Have you ever wondered how you got to be an NSCA “Veteran” if you didn’t serve in the military, or when you will move from one age-based concurrent category to another? For those who are new to NSCA or just need a refresher on NSCA concurrent categories, here is what you need to know.
NSCA concurrents are based on age or gender. For those based on age, eligibility is determined by the shooter’s age on the first day of the target year, and the shooter remains in that concurrent for the entire target year. Shooters may fit into one of these categories:
|Sub-Junior||Has not reached the 16th birthday by Jan. 1 of the target year|
|Junior||Has not reached the 21st birthday|
|Veteran||55 years or older but less than 65|
|Super Veteran||65 years or older but less than 73|
|Sr. Super Veteran||73 years or older but less than 80|
|Legacy||80 years or older|
|Lady||A female of any age|
You can learn more about NSCA concurrents in the NSCA Rule Book. See page 23 (of the Sporting Clays, NSCA 5-Stand, Super Sporting & Parcours de Chasse edition).
