    FORT BENNING, Ga. — The U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit (USAMU) will conduct the 2020 U.S. Army Small Arms Championship (All Army) March 8-14 on several USAMU ranges.

    The competition is hosted by the Maneuver Center of Excellence (MCoE) and Fort Benning, Georgia.

    The competition is free and open to all Soldiers including U.S. Army Active, Guard, Reserve and Military Academy, ROTC cadets and Officer Candidate Course (OCS) students.

    All individual competitors and teams must register online.

    Registrations must be received by February 29, 2020. Walk-ins to this event will not be allowed unless we have not reached the match capacity of 260 competitors on the day of registration. Competitors must register online at https://ct.thecmp.org/app/v1/index.ph.

    The competition develops combat firing skills at the entry and intermediate levels and recognizes superior skill at the highest level. During the event, Soldiers compete in separate classes consisting of cadet, novice, open and professional based on previous competition experience.

    Ammunition is provided, and participants are furnished with firearms if needed, although bringing assigned unit firearms and optics is preferred.
    Additionally, Soldiers can earn Excellence in Competition (EIC) Marksmanship Badges and credit points toward their Distinguished Rifle and Pistol designations in the EIC Matches during the event. The prestigious EIC Badge takes precedence over standard qualification badges.

    Teams include four firing members and coach. Competition events require running and other physical activities. Unit leaders should ensure that Soldiers selected for participation in the All Army are physically fit.
    Team captain, or coach, must have each team member register online by February 29. Competitors will register online at https://ct.thecmp.org/app/v1/index.php

    Match programs will be available on the USAMU website www.usamu.com.
