Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight launched the Corporate SWAT Challenge in 2010 as a unique community event to benefit the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches.
The exclusive competition includes four tactical events that involve endurance activities and strategic thinking. While the goal is to have fun and benefit a worthy cause, this event is for competitors who want to challenge themselves is a team-building atmosphere.
The contest includes the Hostage Rescue, Downed Officer Event, Ladder Scramble and ends with team members tackling different portions of the grueling military-style SWAT Obstacle Course and Zip Line.
Sheriff Tom Knight’s Corporate SWAT Challenge is typically held in October each year at Knight Trail Park in Nokomis.
