Below is the link to the classification tracker.
Before accessing it is important that you understand how it works.
Column A is your name
Column B is your current Classification
Column C is your classification based on the scores entered in the Green/Blue/Red columns
Column D says if you have met the round threshold to reclassify (120 for prone, 240 for course). No means you have under the threshold, Yes means you have met the threshold
Column E Says if a card should be issued.
You classify up if both Column D and Column E say yes. In other words, you have met the round threshold and your new classification is higher than your current.
Some of you may notice your new classification is lower, you will not be classified down, unless you ask.
The purpose of classifications is to rank shooters based on their abilities so they can be grouped in matches. Not all ranges are the same and some ranges are easier to shoot higher scores than others, but the classification has proven the best way historically to try and group shooters based on abilities.
Classifications are based on a rolling average. For across the course it is 240 rounds and for prone and F-Class it is 120 rounds. The classifications are figured out on a rolling average for the example we will use 80 round across the course matches, with a 240 round threshold.
You shoot 3 matches (730,735, and 750) you classify as an expert. Your next match you shoot a 780. Since your first 3 matches met the 240 round threshold your next match (Match 4) will replace your oldest match (Match 1). So now your scores on record are 735, 750, and 780. That is a Master class percentage so after just one match you class up to master. It may take a match or two for a low score to get out of the rotation.
In the case of across the course where there are 50 round matches or long range where there are 45 round Palma matches you may end up over the 120/240 round threshold for a classification.
When you classify upward you will receive an email with your classification card.
If you notice an error in your scores it is important that you contact the match director for the club at which the match was shot.
If you did not receive a new classification card please contact the USHPSA match director you shoot with most often.
