The NCAA Rifle Championship is an annual co-educational rifle national collegiate championship sponsored by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). The tournament includes an individual and team championships consisting of the two-day aggregate scoring of the smallbore competition and air rifle competition. The national championship rounds are contested annually in mid-March. West Virginia and Alaska-Fairbanks combined have won 26 of the 35 Championships, West Virginia leads all with 16, while Alaska Fairbanks has 10.

Under NCAA rules, rifle is technically designated as a men's sport, however it actually has been a coed sport since 1980. Schools sponsoring rifle may field anywhere from one to three teams. If a school chooses to sponsor more than one team, it may have any combination of men's, women's, and coed teams. Two schools field men's and women's teams, two field women's and coed teams, and VMI fields all three types of teams.

The current team national champions are the West Virginia Mountaineers who won their record sixteenth national championship in Murray, Kentucky, hosted by Murray State University on March 14 and 15, 2014. The individual small bore was won by Tim Sherry from Alaska, with the individual air rifle going to Connor Davis of Kentucky.
