chown UserA.Team3 /home/userA
chmod 2770 /home/userA

However, it's better not to use the homedir for such a thing, create
another dir for this purpose.

chown root.Team1 /path/Project1A
chmod 2770 /path/Project1A

In smb.conf you need
create mode = 2770
force create mode = 2770
directory mode = 2770
force directory mode = 2770
for that shares

All this is from memory and not tested :)
