All Guard Team Shooter
The focus of the All Guard Team is to develop a group of Soldiers
and Airmen to compete with various service rifles and pistols at the
highest levels. The highest scoring competitors at WPW will be invited
to the tryouts.
The format is an intensive and structured seven day training session
that will include classroom instruction and range time, firing rifles,
pistols and long range weapons. All shooting will be coached and all
competitors will be mentored by highly skilled and decorated marksmen.
Participants will shoot side by side with existing All Guard members.
Even those that are not selected will receive invaluable training and
will leave much better marksmen.
After selection, team members will continue to be evaluated and trained,
gradually focusing on a primary weapon, while continuing to develop in
all disciplines. Team members will attend various competitions based on
their skill and development.
Selectees must be prepared for a minimum time commitment of 6-8 weeks
per year, some weekends and a willingness to support home state unit
level training. They must remain in good standing with their unit of
assignment. Selectees must also maintain a high level of physical
fitness and military bearing, and have no adverse actions such as flags
