The U.S. Open Skeet Championship is an NSSA shoot, normally held the first full weekend after Labor Day, which rotates location from year to year to allow shooters regionally an opportunity to participate. The location normally rotates between clubs in the East and West. If no qualified club within the respective region has submitted a bid for a particular year, the shoot may be awarded to a club outside the normal rotation sequence.
The shoot is open to all shooters in all classes, and shooters compete against other shooters in their own class. Guns are shot in the sequence of 12 gauge, 20 gauge, 28 gauge, and .410 bore.
Clubs wishing to bid to host future U.S. Open shoots can access requirements by viewing U.S. Open Criteria / Bidding.
