Unit and brigade information
Units within a brigade and units not attached to a brigade may enter teams. The team competition will be conducted in two parts with all competitors participating in individual weapon events and members selected by the team captain and coach to participate in the teams matches.
The combined team element will consist of nine matches over seven days focusing on fitness, endurance and marksmanship. The emphasis during the team competition is on combat-oriented shooting where competitors will be exposed to varying conditions including obstacle courses, close quarter battle, timed and moving practices.
Scores attained in both the individual weapon and team events will contribute to the overall winning team/s.
The Australian Army Combat Shooting Team will contest all matches against the international teams.
ADF teams are restricted to the following number of personnel:
Brigade - minimum of eight, maximum of 10 firers and two support staff;
- Service rifle - eight firers (all team members may shoot for individual awards);

Range safety supervisors
All ADF brigade teams are to provide two, non-competing, Category A range safety supervisor qualified officers or Non-Commissioned Officers (NCOs) to fulfil safety supervisor duties for the duration of the competition.
These personnel are to have their travel and entitlements funded by Combined Arms Training Centre (CATC) and as such are to be suitably competent and professional NCOs who are not only performing a key range function, but are ambassadors for their unit/formation.
