The OSWC is held at Camp Robinson, on the outskirts of Little Rock, AR in May, 2007. Original S.W.A.T. Footwear Company is Title Sponsor of this world’s most elite S.W.A.T. competition. The competition is an invitation-only, international World Championship designed to test the mental toughness, physical fitness, and weapons skills of the world’s top S.W.A.T. teams. It is recognition of a team’s excellence just to be invited to participate.

The competition consists of eight grueling, live-fire events. Their descriptive names hint at the unique stresses of each task: Sniper Challenge, Masked Entry, Three-Gun Challenge, Zodiac Attack, Original SWAT Range Run, Carbine Car Assault, Pistol Shoot-Off and LEOPARD Challenge. All events are performed head-to-head, unique in SWAT competitions. Six to ten officers comprise a team. Each competes wearing handguns, full tactical gear (helmets, body armor, and LBE utility belts), shoulder-fired weapon and in some situations, specialized equipment such as gas masks or SCBA. The shooting requirements are precise with only one round provided for each target and severe time penalties for each miss. The events are scored objectively, based on targets hit and time, with the fastest total time winning. The action is fast-paced and demanding with teams performing like professional athletes to accomplish their missions. The overall winning team of the OSWC is crowned World Champion.

Original S.W.A.T was founded in 1999 with the goal of “building a better boot.” It has now grown to be one of the top providers of tactical footwear for law enforcement, military personnel, security, and public safety workers. Original S.W.A.T. is the most comfortable boot on the market, while retaining superior tactical performance. For WILD CARD Promotion information, visit www.originalswat.com.
