ABOUT THE TACTICAL GAMES

If climbing obstacles, running with a rucksack on, carrying heavy things, and shooting from unconventional positions excites you, then The Tactical Games will cause your heart to explode! This is Crossfit-meets-Combat! The Tactical Games is the world’s premier competition to find the Most Dangerous Man/Woman on Earth!

What Are the Tactical Games?

What is the difference between a professional baseball player, pro-football player, or basketball player and a tactical athlete? Professional sports players get an off season. Tactical athletes are professional level athletes with No Off Season! They are on point 24/7, 365 days a year. A Green Beret, SEAL, or Delta Operator doesn’t have the luxury of taking a day off. They don’t get to say, “I’m just not into it today!” They are constantly deploying or preparing to deploy to the sound of the guns. The Tactical Games were created to provide a venue to test these amazing men and women, and to crown THE MOST DANGEROUS MAN/WOMAN IN THE WORLD!

Whether a tactical athlete finds himself in the desert, jungle, urban sprawl, wet, dry, hot, or cold, they are prepared physically, mentally, tactically and technically to complete the mission. The Tactical Games is designed to test the skills, readiness, and mental toughness of these athletes. The Tactical Games fill a huge gap in the shooting world. Existing shooting competitions fail to comprehensively capture the essence of what a tactical athlete is and what he does. For a tactical athlete, fitness is a means, not an end. Fitness allows a tactical athlete to get to the fight, perform at a high level, execute the mission, and get back home safely, despite the conditions or terrain. The Tactical Games will embody this type of challenge, and bring it to the world in a measurable and testable format. In short, we will make combat a spectator sport!

The Origin of The Tactical Games

Based on a highly secretive event hosted and ran by NATO Tier 1 units, The Tactical Games is designed to test tactical athletes throughout the continuum of combat related tasks, while under time constraints, and under physical duress. It is one thing to shoot a target with a pistol at 50 yards. It is quite different and exponentially more difficult, to shoot a target with a pistol at 50 yards after running a mile, dragging a 200lb mannequin for a distance, hopping over obstacles, and then shooting accurately with a heart rate over 150 beats per minute.

Shooting Competitions vs The Tactical Games

Although there is some cross-over between Three Gun competitions and The Tactical Games, as both events require shooting weapons, the two events couldn’t be more different. Three Gun matches are generally sprint-style events lasting a couple of minutes at most. The Tactical Games will challenge the best of shooters, but will do so during, and after, grueling physical challenges. To compete and win at the Tactical Games will require the fitness level of a professional athlete, with the tactical and technical skills of the best tactical operatives in the world. We anticipate that Tier 1 and Tier 2 operators such as Green Berets, SEALs, as well as SWAT officers will do well in The Tactical Games. Being able to shoot is not enough. A tactical athlete will be required above all to THINK, but also to move over long distance, carry heavy weights, and utilize bursts of strength and energy to win the title of the Most Dangerous Man/Woman in the World.
