Scout Sniper elemenT (SSE)


This match is centered on team cohesion, shooting ability, physical fitness, stress management, and problem solving in a team environment. Our team competes against SWAT teams from Texas, adjoining states, and various federal agencies.

Each event is Sniper initiated giving our sniper a very stressful workload due to target size, distance and required shooting positions.


The objective of this match is to improve our weapons handling, gain personal confidence, and develop mental flexibility to prepare for our national championship matches in the Spring.

The TTPOA event provides a training focus unlike any other on our schedule. The match rules and target engagements are the literal antithesis of what we do the remainder of the year, the shooting is more accuracy intensive than any other match, the team focus of the competition forces and requires communication and joint problem solving on the clock and in a dynamic setting.
