Drill Team

You’ll learn every aspect of Drill & Ceremony with and without a rifle. You’ll participate in various competitions, throughout Northern New England, during the school year, usually held on weekends. This will lead to a trip to “The All Army Drill Competition”. This consists of precision movements with the M1903 Springfield rifle and Drill & Ceremony. Only the strongest competitors will be selected for this elite unit. You must also be passing ALL classes.

The Drill Team is comprised of 20 to 24 cadets. Tryouts for the Drill Team are open to all cadets in good standing. During the second or third weeks of September, tryouts begin. If selected you are required to attend mandatory daily practice sessions. Two or three times a week.
