Drill Team Competition

Cadets compete on a team of up to 16 members. There are three parts to the drill competition on which the cadets are evaluated.

 

  1. Uniform Inspection
  2. Compulsory Sequence
  3. Supplementary Sequence

 

 

Cadets are inspected prior to competing. Cadets uniforms are assessed for proper badge placement, well ironed, boots shone, hair is proper, free of lint and pennants. Cadets then complete a mandatory drill sequence that has been practiced beforehand, that the team captain will deliver to the team. After the mandatory routine is completed, the team captain then reports and the team will then complete an entirely silent routine with no cues or commands from the team captain.

 

 

As a part of the teams points, they are evaluated on their uniforms, the precision of their drill movements, ability to follow their captains commands/orders. Team captains are marked on completing the sequence in order, power of command, bearing, control of their team and use of the parade square space.
