Krieghoff All-American Points System

Krieghoff All-American teams are selected according to a points system based on shoots participated in, difficulty factor of those shoots, shoot results, and other factors. The points system and calculation of shooters’ place are detailed below.

Shooter Eligibility for Open Events
Shooters who complete the required Open Minimum Target totals of 1000 in the 12 gauge, 800 in the 20, 28 and 410 gauges, and 500 in the doubles events are eligible for selection to the NSSA All American Open Teams.

Shoot Rankings
The “Shoot Difficulty Factor” will be computed at NSSA by the computer, by adding the combined number of AAA and AA shooters in each of the open events reported and dividing the total by the actual number of events. This Shoot Difficulty Factor will be the unit of measure used to determine where this shoot ranks in the list of shoots for the year (Shoot Ranking). The shoot with the highest shoot difficulty will be ranked first, followed by the remaining shoots in descending order of difficulty.

NOTE: The All American Committee has elected to limit the points given for the World and Mini-World shoots. Instead of using the real difficulty factor, the difficulty factor will be calculated based on the largest point shoot of the year other than the World/Mini-World. The Mini World will be set at 1.5 times this shoot’s value and the World will be set at 2 times this shoot’s value.

Using the 2000 Masters Shoot at the Forest City Gun Club in Savannah, Georgia as an example:

 

227(12ga.)+253(20ga.)+216(28ga.)+154(410ga.)+135(doubles)   985   = 197
5 (events)   5  

The “Shoot Difficulty Factor” is 197 using the equation above.

Individual Rankings (Open and Concurrent)
Shooters who are eligible for All American consideration will be ranked in descending order by points earned from the 12 shoots which provide an individual with the most points. This is called a shooter’s “Top 12″ shoot report. (For a shooter who shoots the minimum required targets in less than 12 shoots, all of his or her shoots in which points were awarded will be listed in this section).

Distribution of Points
Clubs or Shoot Managers reporting the results of shoots to the NSSA will report the following number of places on the shoot report. Care should be taken to assure any method (computer or manual) of reporting includes the number of places prescribed. The Champion (CH), Runner-Up (RU) and Third (3rd) places can come from any Class or Group and will be awarded the points earned, but All American points will only be awarded to places in AAA and AA Classes of the Open Events, and to Group I places in any Concurrent Events. Shooters in Classes A and below of Open Events and Groups II and below of Concurrent Events are not awarded points for their places in these events.

Note: Points will only be awarded for as many places in class AA/AAA and the concurrent events as dictated by the Distribution of Points section below.

Event Champion (CH) = 4 Points

HOA Champion (CH) = 8 Points

Event Runner-Up (RU) = 3 Points

HOA Runner-Up (RU) = 6 Points

Event Third (3RD) = 2 Points

HOA 3RD (3RD) = 4 Points

HOA AA/AAA Class 2nd =1.8 Points

AA/AAA Class 3rd = .8 Points

HOA AA/AAA Class 3rd =1.6 Points

AA/AAA Class 4th = .7 Points

HOA AA/AAA Class 4th =1.4 Points

AA/AAA Class 5th = .6 Points

HOA AA/AAA Class 5th =1.2 Points

Individual Shooter Profiles

“Shoot Difficulty Factor” x “Award Point Value” = “Total Open Points”

Shooter Eligibility for Concurrent Events
Shooters who complete the required Concurrent Minimum Target totals of 1000 in the 12 gauge, 800 in the 20, 28 and 410 gauges, and 500 in the doubles events are eligible for selection to the NSSA All American Concurrent Teams.

Concurrent Event Factors
The “Concurrent Event Factor” for all Concurrent Events offered at a shoot will be determined by NSSA. The NSSA Computer will count every shooter who is eligible to participate in a concurrent based on the approved rules for concurrents. For age concurrents the birth date will be used, and a shooter will qualify in their age concurrent based on their age on November 1st of the shooting year. Other concurrents will be determined on data provided to NSSA by the shooter and maintained in the Member Master File. Gender will determine the Lady Concurrent. Current enrollment status will determine a shooter’s Collegiate Concurrent status. Current military status on file will determine the Active Duty Concurrent and Retired Military Concurrent. The total number of eligible entries in each concurrent event will be computed by NSSA for each shoot. This “Concurrent Event Factor” will be multiplied by the “Award Point Value” to determine the “Total Concurrent Points” awarded to a shooter who earns one of the places in a Concurrent Event. This differs from the “Open Events” where the “Shoot Difficulty Factor” is used.

Individual Shooter Profiles for Concurrents
The concurrent event profiles on individual shooters will provide a detailed account of the points a shooter has earned throughout the year. These points are calculated using the “factors” established for All American Awards.

“Concurrent Event Factor” x “Award Point Value” = “Total Concurrent Points”.

Related Information:

·         A member of an Open Team may also be selected as the Captain of one or more concurrent teams if all the evaluation factors so indicate.

·         The Rookie Team has no Captain assigned.

·         Members of the Open Teams are not eligible for Class All American Honors. 

Award Point Values
The Award Point Values are established as numeric values assigned to each of the approved places in the Open, Concurrent and High Over All (HOA) Events of NSSA Registered Shoots.  

Using the Difficulty Factor of 197 from the 2000 Masters example from above:
