Red Team is one of the original teams designated at the beginning of every season of Top Shot, along with the Blue Team. The Red Team has eight members and is distinguished by red jerseys, sweaters, and coats.
Aside of their clothes, red flags and targets are usually seen through the challenges. Also, starting with Season Two, small red targets are nailed to the wall honoring the eliminated members.
In the middle of each season, the Red and Blue Teams are merged into Green Team.
