 MISSION

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)
