The US Army Reserve Marksmanship Training and Competitive Program prescribes responsibilities, policies, and procedures for the USAR in small arms marksmanship training and competition. It applies to USAR competitions from company or equivalent level through international level. The overall objectives of the program are to heighten interest and impose small arms marksmanship training. The purpose of small arms marksmanship training is to improve the skill of Soldiers in use of their weapons, instill confidence, provide mobilization/readiness assets for combat readiness, and develop skilled marksmanship instructors to assist USAR units in training and annual qualifying programs.

The U.S. Army Reserve marksmanship unit and team is comprised of Army Reserve Soldiers performing duties in one or more of the following activities:
  • USAR Rifle Team (International, Service, and Shotgun)
  • USAR Pistol Team (International and Service)
  • USAR Marksmanship Mobile Training Team
  • USAR Marksmanship Public Affairs Program
  • USAR Postal Match Program
  • USAR Marksmanship Special Projects. This includes Service Conditions (Combat), Action/Practical, and other activities.

Details of the teams that make up the Program under US Army Reserve Command:

  • The Mobile Training Team is comprised of instructors, most of them having experience with our competitive teams, conducting small arms training for the Army Reserve.
  • The Service Conditions (Combat) Team fires rack grade, military issue small arms in a variety of tactical scenarios at NATO-recognized National and International events.
  • The Service Rifle Team is a group of precision rifle marksmen competing in Across The Course (High Power) National Match Course and Long Range events. Events are conducted under NRA and CMP rules and use accurized service rifles and match rifles with iron and optical sights and are shot from 200 to 1000 yards.
  • The Service Pistol Team is comprised of precision pistol marksmen firing .22, 9mm and .45 service and match pistols. National Match Course events held conducted under NRA and CMP rules use precision targets out to fifty yards.
  • The Postal Match Program conducts the World-wide Chief, Army Reserve Postal Match that all Army Reserve units and Soldiers are eligible to participate. We also publish a Rulebook and Course of FIre Book covering all Army Reserve competitive events.
  • The Public Affairs Program keeps Soldiers and the public informed about small arms training and publishes Army Reserve Marksman, an online newsletter devoted to information concerning marksmanship training and competition and available to all USAR units, appropriate agencies, and individuals.
