The Drill Team consists of a formation of cadet executing
precision drill. Our drill team performs both armed and unarmed drill. In armed drill, the formation carries facsimile
rifles while performing a drill sequence. Drill
is a basic military skill and is easily learned. The Drill Team consists of a "First Year" team of cadets who are
in their first year of JROTC. There is also and "Advanced" drill team that consists of cadets beyond their
first year of JROTC, and may also include "first year" cadets who have demonstrated an advanced level of drill proficiency.
Both the First Year and the Advanced Drill Teams compete in competitions with other JROTC units. However, the First
Year Drill Team does not perform armed drill in competitions. The Drill Team also performs with the Color Guard at athletic
events, parades, Veterans' Day programs and other ceremonial events. Being on the Drill Team or the Color Guard is the
first step in advancing to the Exhibition Drill Team. The Drill Team annually competes in the AFJROTC National Drill
Championship competition held in Macon Georgia in the Spring of each year. The top AFJROTC Drill Teams in the nation participate
in this event and the competition is fierce!
