ARMED DRILL TEAM
The Armed Drill Team is similar to the Unarmed Drill Team with the addition of exact military replica rifles. This team practices on the drill pad using not only the same commands and facing movements as the unarmed team but also incorporates a whole new set of regulation movements tied to their performance rifles. While most of the executed movements were inspired by United States Air Force Drill Team, many of them are original movements crafted and perfected by our team members.
Cadet Behavior Requirements for Drill Rifles:
Any aggressive or threatening behavior with a drill rifle is strictly prohibited (pointing at someone, acting like you are sighting at people/targets/etc).
Horseplay or irresponsible behavior with a rifle is strictly prohibited.
Cadets WILL NOT leave the supervision of AFJROTC staff when in possession of an AFJROTC drill rifle.
Only authorized cadets may handle drill rifles and only when permitted and supervised by the AFJROTC staff.
Cadets selected to be on the Armed Drill Team understand that any violation of the behavior requirements is cause for immediate dismissal from the team. Other disciplinary actions may be taken depending on the severity of the infraction.
A rifle handled properly in a ceremony lends dignity and solemnity to an event. A rifle handled improperly detracts from the goals of the AFJROTC program.
