“NSSF created the Sportsman’s Team Challenge as the first televised shooting competition and we’re excited that Doug and his friends are bringing back this classic event in a format that provides everyone, regardless of their skill level, with an opportunity to participate in a safe, fun and friendly format. It’s good for the local host community, good for the shooting community and good for the industry.”

Welcome to the Sportsman’s Team Challenge

Sportsman’s Team challenge is a two or three person team event, which combines multi-discipline shooting competition of rifle, pistol and shotgun. Designed to be competitor and spectator friendly with colorful reactive targets and countdown times visible to onlookers, the event continues to introduce newcomers at regional matches throughout the country.

The course of fire consists of six events, three of which involve colorful reactive steel targets that are engaged with .22 rimfire rifles, .22 rimfire pistols and centerfire pistols. These events are the Rifle, Pistol and Combo. Each event is designed to encourage teams to incorporate team strategy with individual shooting skills to achieve the best results for the team.

Three shotgun events utilize aerial clay targets to round out the field of fire with the Flurry, Flush and Mixed Bag. The Flurry and Flush require teams to engage fifty targets in approximately one minute, while the Mixed Bag is similar to a five-stand course with the shooter not knowing from which of the trap machines a pair of clay targets will be released upon their call.
