There can be a variety of team matches offered. Those matches offered are chosen by the host team but normally include Carbine Team, Smoothbore Musket Team, and Rifled Musket Team matches. In addition host teams may include Revolver Team and Repeating Rifle Team Matches. Most teams are made up of 5 people and they compete by firing at breakable targets as a team.

The team with the lowest total of time wins.
