FULL Registration Has Begun. To Register for the Competition, complete only the registration form below and submit it with your full payment to the listed address. If you already pre-registered for the competition, please be sure to take your pre-registration cost into account on the form. You will then need to have a completed waiver form for each Explorer AND Advisor when you arrive at Check-In in January. You will also need a Pistol Shoot waiver for each shooter and a SWAT Fitness Waiver for each athlete at Check-In as well. As a little encouragement to get those registration forms in early, the first 25 teams to register in full will be guaranteed to compete in their top 5 picks. For all other teams, we will make every effort to schedule your desired events, but we cannot guarantee all five.
Please pay special attention this year to page 4 of the competition manual. This year, we are supporting the Arizona 100 Club in their efforts to help officers and firefighters. The program that is able to help raise the most money for the 100 Club will receive 50% of their competition fees back in CASH at registration. Get everyone you know to log on and donate a dollar or more. Every little bit will add up for the 100 Club and it will add up for you too. Special donation instructions are described in the manual.
Outside of the event catergory, we have an opportunity for your Post to showcase some of their tallent. In the coming weeks, we will be posting a process to submit your Post or Explorer to present at our closing ceremonies. One Post will be selected to present the National Colors and an Explorer will be selected to sing the National Anthem. Unless by some incredible coincidence, these two honors will be awarded to two Posts. The Posts selected will benefit from special scheduling arangements to ensure you are ready to begin at the start of closing ceremonies. However, the number of events you participate in will still be determined by your Advisors selection, and on a first come/first serve basis. The submission process will require you provide a video of the function you are applying for - Colors or National Anthem. This can be mailing a CD/DVD, emailing a video or posting on YouTube and forwarding a hyperlink. More details to come, but questions can be sent to Chandler's Advisor, Officer Somerville.

The Chandler Arizona Tactical Competition held its first competition in 1999 at Folley Park. The Competition included many of the events that are offered today, including the HRT events, Negotiations, an Obstacle Course, Firearms and so on. In an effort to bring back competitors, events are changed, updated and in many cases more events are added to continually grow the event. Infact, the growth of the event forced the move from Folley Park to the Chandler Fire Department Training Facility in south Chandler. The greater size and gracious hospitality of the Chandler Fire Department allowed us to bring some events at remote locations together at one place. It also allowed us to accept more Posts as popularity of our competition grew. That being said, our Post and this competition would not have grown to what it is today without the support of all the empolyees of the Chandler Police Department. It is important to mention that many officers volunteer and move their schedules around to support us in hosting this competition. We hope you can make it this coming year!
