SniperWeek 2020 Announcement

Registration for the next SniperWeek Conference and Competition just opened.

From the Snipercraft website

April 1 - 4, 2020 - St. Petersburg - Clearwater, Florida

SniperWeek is a unique training event for police and military snipers. It combines two days of comprehensive classroom lectures and presentations with two days of intense, job-related range training and competition. SniperWeek is recognized as the largest, and longest running police sniper training event of its kind in the world. This year's event marks 26 years of bringing the best training available to the professional sniper community. There is nothing else like it anywhere.


Two days of presentations focusing on topics of importance to today's special operations personnel. The presentations made at this seminar represent state-of-the- art training and current, pertinent information for snipers, team leaders and administrators. Topics this year include numerous first-person incident debriefings, pre and post shooting legal issues, and training issues. Operational preparedness and protection against liability are among the key topics addressed during the seminar. Attendance is open to all police and military personnel. If your agency has a SWAT team, or is contemplating starting one, you need to attend.


This is not a contest, or a world championship. Nor is this to be confused with your basic bullseye benchrest course. This is a competitive sniper training event without equal. Any sniper seeking to gauge his readiness to operate in the real world of tactical deployments should stop here first.

The emphasis is on training. The Snipercraft Challenge is a unique course, designed by and for police snipers. Using actual sniper incidents as the model, each phase incorporates documented realism. The result is a practical series of intense live-fire exercises, set up to test your fitness, equipment, teamwork, problem-solving, communication skills, ability to perform under a variety of stressors - and your marksmanship. Exactly like the next time the pager goes off. This is an opportunity to validate your preparation.

Participation is open only to active, certified police SWAT team and military personnel.

Competitors will consist of two-man sniper/observer teams. Single snipers will be paired up at the tournament. There is a 60 team limit. Registration deadline is March 1, or when we reach our team limit, whichever comes first. Due to space limitations, early registration is strongly advised. Spots are not confirmed, until payment is received. No-shows cannot be refunded. Substitutions are accepted.

We offer you a chance to try, to learn, and to test yourself. Are you up to "The Challenge?" There is nothing like it.
