EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

We have a Drill Team, Color Guard, Raider and a Rifle Team.  Cadets have the opportunity to participate in one or a combination of these major competitive activities.  During the school year, these teams have the opportunity to compete against teams within the Cobb County Schools system and other Junior ROTC programs outside of this area.  The annual competition includes both Citywide and State events.
             The Drill Teams and Color Guards not only complete in competitive events, but also routinely participate in an array of community supports activities by performing at parades, football games, baseball games, special events and social functions.  
           
As members of these teams, cadets who participate in competitive events must meet the State Quality Basic Education (QBE) standards.  The JROTC program takes academics very seriously and vigorously enforces the QBE standards.

DRILL TEAM   

Drill Teams may be composed of all males, all females, or mixed (male/females).  Drill teams of each of the school/units develop and personalize their own unique drill sequences.  There are two types of drill routines that the teams may prepare for competition.  These are Regulation Platoon Drill and Exhibition Drill.  Regulation Platoon Drill has a set sequence of movements that must be executed in a predetermined step-by-step format.  Exhibition Drill is just the opposite whereby the teams are given the latitude to put together their own drill routine for showmanship.
