U.S. Model Rocket Sporting Code
(aka "Pink Book")

The U.S. Model Rocket Sporting Code is the rule book for NAR competition model rocketry. From time to time, the Sporting Code undergoes major revision and a major revision was just approved by the NAR Board on June 4, 2017.

The new USMRSC- July, 2017 edition goes into effect on July 1, 2017 for the 2017-2018 contest year.

However, the current contest year and NARAM 59 is operating under the Sporting Code dated October, 2015 (full version in PDF format).

Minor updates to the Sporting Code are made annually through the Rules Revision Process.

Be sure to check out the Competition Guide for more detailed information about competition. Each of the events has a separate section, with tips and plans for models.

The online version of the US Model Rocket Sporting Code is maintained by a volunteer from the NAR Contest Board. If you have comments or corrections to make to the contents, please do not contact the NAR webmaster — contact the maintainer instead.

The October, 2015 edition of the Sporting Code was last updated August 1, 2016.
