Teams

Drill Team without Arms


Drill competitions consist of a teams of cadets preforming both a compulsary sequence where each team displays identical movements which are called out by the team Drill Commander and a precision (silent) sequence where the team moves through a memorized sequence of movements without the benefit of the Drill Commader's direction.

Each team is marked on the quality of their movements, the condition of their uniform and the overall conduct displayed by the members.

Less experienced cadets will normally be asked to participate with this team where they will learn the new movements required for competition.  The Commander of this team will be a more senior cadet that has experienced prior competitions and is able to help correct and encourage the new members.


We will be updating our website with additional information regarding this team as it becomes available.

he cadet will then time stamp their card and move on to finding the next location from the map.
Not all stamps are worth the same number of points.  Stamps that are harder to locate or are further afield will sometimes be worth more points.
The team that finishes the fastest with most stamps is declared the winner.
