Drill teaches precision, discipline, and leadership to the cadets involved. Our drill team consists of several teams under a number of categories either at the squad or platoon level. Platoons contain a formation of 12 cadets plus the commander, a total of 13. Squads contain usually up to 10 people, but can have as few as 7 people. These different formations compete in the following events at each drill competition.
Exhibition Drill consists of the cadets doing whatever they like in a given area executing various movements with demilitarized weapons. They may do anything as long as it is in a militaristic manner. This consists of throwing, spinning and exchanging the weapons throughout a 6-9 minute performance.
Regulation Drill is where the cadets on each team march around in a given area executing a set list of commands. It involves the armed and unarmed categories. The armed formations use demilitarized weapons and execute various movements while marching. The unarmed formations do not use weapons.
The Drill Team practices every Wednesday after school from 14:30 - 15:30 and is currently practicing for upcoming competitions and performances
