JROTC Quote of the Month:
“Don’t let your ego get too close to your position, so that if your position gets shot down, your ego doesn’t go with it.” -General Colin Powell
- Armed Drill Team: This team teaches cadets to march, spin rifles, and have fun. This team is for males only.
- Unarmed Drill Team: Cadets learn to march, and routines with beats using their hands. It sounds complicated, but if you put in time, and effort, you can learn the routines well. On this drill team you do not have rifles. This team is for females only.
- Color Guard: The color guard consists of two cadets with flags, and two cadets with rifles. The color guard team can be seen presenting the flags at the beginning of our football games. You will learn patience and precise movements if you decide to join this team.
- Physical Fitness Team (PT): This team practically explains itself. Cadets increase their physical endurance and stamina through strength training, and aerobic workouts.
Tuesday: Inspection (Uniform Day)
Friday: Physical Training (PT)
This course is run by the cadets. It also counts as a P.E credit. It is broken down into three companies Alpha, Bravo, and Charlie. We hope you consider joining our VOK Battalion.
