ORFOLK (NNS) -- The U.S. Navy Marksmanship Team (USNMT) recently announced this year's match schedule for service rifle and service pistol competition.

The Atlantic Fleet and All-Navy East matches will run May 14-23 at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia. Pacific Fleet and All-Navy West matches will run April 21-30 at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, California.

"Our season starts with the Atlantic Fleet and Pacific Fleet matches," said Cmdr. Jon Marvell, USNMT officer in charge. "Every Navy shooter from around the fleet, including Reservists and retirees, is invited to attend these competitions. From these two matches, we select the best 100 shooters from each coast to compete in the All-Navy matches -- east and west."

The top 20 shooters Navywide for pistol and the top 20 for rifle are invited to represent the Navy at interservice and national matches where they compete against the top shooters from all military services.

The interservice pistol match will be held at Fort Benning, Georgia, June 11-16. Interservice Rifle will be at MCB Quantico, from July 26-August 2.

National rifle and pistol matches will be held in two locations this year: Camp Perry, Ohio, and Camp Atterbury, Indiana. 

"We encourage all interested shooters to attend the fleet matches," said Marvell. "Even if you have limited competition experience and don't own any equipment; we have shooters who will loan you the equipment you need to compete and we will provide ammunition for matches. The more competitors we have, the better chance we have of building a strong Navy team for interservice and national competition."
