It is a winter seasoned team. It corresponds with the Drill and Exhibition teams due to the nature of the competition, and they travel anywhere from Purdue University to the University of Kentucky and Toledo, Ohio! If you have more questions about this team, the Instructor is Command Sergeant Major (retired) Smith. We hope you try it out!

Drill & Exhibition Team

The Team Description
The Drill Team is a team that  deals with the exactness of marching. The members of the team are scored on their ability to march, with or without drill rifles, as exactly as possible.

The Exhibition team is a team that competes at the same competitions alongside the Drill team, but along with being graded on preciseness and the exactness of their ability to march, they are also scored on creativity with and without rifles. 

Commander: Cadet CSM Joseph O'Donnell

Cadets are commonly scored on how many push ups and sit ups they can do in a two-minute period; how fast they can run a mile; field navigation; how they use first-aid in the field; how they tie various knots; and how they work as a team. The Raider team is not limited to the fore mentioned obstacles, and have a variety of activities they do to prepare for the next competition.

NOTE: All Cadets who participate in this team will be required to have a physical on file with the school.
