2023 - NCTOA SWAT Competition

The 2023 NCTOA SWAT Competition is fast approaching and will be here before we know it. Location of this
year's competition is the Samarcand Training Academy located at,
3600 Samarcand Rd, Jackson Springs, NC 27281.

This event will be held from October 23rd through October 26th.
Cost will be $400 per Team of 6-10 Operators and all room and board
costs will be covered by Samarcand Training Academy (FREE).

The Board Members and others helping with this event are excited and ready to see what Teams from
across the State bring to the table during the events. Registrations will have to be done through the
Community College system and the training facility will require certain documentation to be
completed prior to the event.

Please keep in mind the website is somewhat under construction and the ability to
pay for this event online is not possible at this time. When the issue is resolved, an update will
be posted. In the meantime, if you have any questions feel free to contact any of the Board Members
and we will be more than happy to help in any way we can.
