What is the Comprehensive Sniper Readiness Challenge (CSRC)? Understanding the definitions of the two words below is a good place to start.

  • Comprehensive: Complete; including all or nearly all elements or aspects of something.

  • Readiness: The state of being fully prepared for something.

Simply put the CSRC bridges the gap between "course" and "competition" while assessing proficiency, capability, and thus overall readiness of the individual.

RECONNAISSANCE

As masters of stealth, camouflage, infiltration, and observation techniques snipers are perfectly suited to operate behind enemy lines and provide command with critical operational intelligence regarding enemy's size, strength and location.

SUPPORT

Snipers are highly proficient in establishing concealed positions with a clear view of the battlefield from which they can call for indirect fire, air strikes, direct ground forces and remain on target for days providing real time on the ground intelligence.

The Real World Sniper Challenge is designed to honor the sniper craft and community through a series of mental and physical challenges under a variety of stressors. Make no mistake about it this event will be as advertised and will quickly identify the unprepared.

 

Sniper teams are expected to arrive physically prepared to move themselves and their equipment between stages along improved roads and over terrain. It's crucial each team member be capable of operating independently as well as a cohesive unit.

Although this is a competition, the format, tasks and atmosphere will be that of real world sniper operations and reward those who approach it as such. Registration is open to military, law enforcement and civilians alike, however proficiency in the tasks and engagements provided is essential.
