The Adjutant General's Combat Match

The Adjutant General's Combat Championship Match or "TAG Match" is held every Spring at Camp Smith, Peekskill, New York. The 2014 TAG Match was held 30 May - 1 June.

Each year Reserve Component Military Members from around New York State and Guardsmen from neighboring states participate in the Match.

This intensive, 3 day training event, hosts a series of matches in multiple disciplines to include rifle, pistol, and light machinegun. Mandatory small arms firing schools are conducted throughout Friday afternoon and evening, with one final class conducted Saturday morning prior to competitors reporting to the ranges.

The purpose of the TAG Match is two-fold:

  1. To offer both the units and individual soldiers an opportunity to improve their marksmanship skills
  2. To provide New York National Guard units an opportunity to be selected to represent the State of New York in national level competitions

Competitors range in experience from the novice to the Distinguished Marksman. Regardless of marksmanship level, there is no better way to train to shoot live rounds down range under intense competitive conditions.


Urge your squad leader, section sergeant, and commander to let you shoot in the next TAG Combat Match!
