Members of other services or other nations' armed forces serving with Australian Defence Force (ADF) units are permitted to enter as part of the unit or brigade team. International personnel serving with Australian units selected for an international team cannot form part of an ADF Team.
All competitors compete in the service rifle matches with selected members of each team contesting light support weapon and pistol matches. Remaining team members may fire pistol matches.
Aggregated individual and team matches in all weapons contribute towards the overall results. Although awards will be presented for individual achievement, the focus is on the team performance overall.
A maximum of 10 members for brigade teams and five members for unit teams are selected to compete in the ten day competition. While all team members shoot all service rifle matches, the team captain and/or coach nominate the firers whose score will determine the team aggregate prior to firing the competition.
Team matches will also be fired during the competition with these results coupled with the scores from the individual aggregated team matches to determine the winning teams for the brigade and unit competition.
Members of other services or other nation's armed forces serving with ADF units are permitted to enter as part of the unit/brigade team. Internationals serving with ADF units selected for an international team cannot form part of an ADF team.
