Super Squad Competition


4th Marine Division conducts an Annual Rifle Squad Competition (ARSC) to foster the warrior spirit through intense competition and determine the top rifle squad within 4th Marine Division for 2017. The competition cadre will consist of SNCO’s and NCO’s within MARFORRES and logistical support from Force Headquarters Group and the host battalion. The competition is designed to evaluate a 14-man infantry squad throughout an extensive field and live-fire evolution. 4th Marine Division conducts the ARSC aboard Fort Richardson, Alaska in order to determine the top rifle squad in the Division.  The 2017 ARSC is open only to each of the 4th Marine Division infantry regiments. This year the Commanding General granted that each infantry regiment will provide their top two rifle squads to compete in offensive operations, defensive operations, patrolling techniques, combat marksmanship, physical endurance, and overall small unit leadership. Each event will be evaluated and scored with results and leaders board tracked throughout the event. At the conclusion of the competition each squad will participate in the closing ceremony where the Division Commanding General will recognize the top squad in the Division and award them with the “Super Squad” medal.
