What is Drill Team? Drill Team consists of several smaller teams which compete in the areas of marching and rifle movements. There are a total of five teams under the Drill Team’s administration.

  • Unarmed Regulation Drill: Consists of basic marching and facing movements in a platoon. Scores based on correct and precise completion of a standard “drill card” (a routine of certain commands executed in a set order).
  • Armed Regulation Drill: Similar to Unarmed Standard, but with basic rifle movements added to the marching card. 
  • Unarmed Exhibition: Consists of a more advanced, team-developed routine of military step. Emphasis on military bearing, synchronization, and precision.
  • Armed Exhibition: This team is essentially the face of military drill in any branch. Consists of rifle spinning and throwing to a team-developed routine. Armed Exhibition teams can be 1, 2, and 4 cadet small teams as well as a platoon size element.
  • Competition Color Guard: This four-man team marches a standard drill card in a detail consisting of two rifles, the JROTC Battalion flag, and the United States’ Flag. (Competition Color Guard is not necessary for participation in extracurricular Color Guards.

When does this team practice and compete? The Drill Team practices Monday through Thursday from 0645 to 0745 starting in the 1st Semester. Competitions take place on Fridays and Saturdays beginning in February through the end of April, competing among schools throughout Colorado.
