PRS Club Series Classifications
In order for shooters to be able to compete with their peers, PRS Club Series competitors are divided into classifications based upon their skill level and performance. The PRS has an efficient and easy method of classifying our shooters. Only PRS affiliated clubs scores will count toward classifications.
The reason for the PRS Classification System is to have the ability to rank competitors and allow shooters to have true peer-to-peer recognition. This minimizes the need for equipment divisions and allows all competitors to compete within their performance/experience level and equipment capabilities.
The PRS Club Series classification is a dynamic system. Classifications may move up or down based on a competitor’s performance and will remain variable until the last affiliated regional match of the year. Once all scheduled club matches are complete, competitors will then be “qualified” in their final classifications for their Regional finale. Shooters may then compete in their qualified class during the season finale for final regional series results. Classifications will be reset after each season.
Competitors can achieve a classification of either Pro, Semi-Pro, Expert, Sharpshooter, Marksman or Amateur. Each class consists of a percentage of the total number of regional PRS Club affiliated shooters, based on the most current standings.
Pro shooters, for example, will be classified as the top 10% of competitors according to the most current regional standings. Competitors within the top 80-89.9% of shooters, based on current standings will be classified as Semi-Pro and so on.
