ABOUT THE TEAM:

Drill Team is a marching unit that performs routines based on military drill. Military drill teams perform either armed or unarmed.

  • All of the United States military service branches have an official drill team part of their respective service Honor Guard. The service academies have drill teams, as well as many college and university ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corps) and high school JROTC (Junior ROTC) units. Additionally, many community-based organizations such as the Army Cadet Corps, Naval Sea Cadets, Young Marines and Civil Air Patrol maintain military drill teams.

  • A JROTC drill team is a marching unit that performs routines based on military drill. These teams often perfect their proficiency and then choose to compete against other programs. These competitions are generally called “Drill Meets”, and are held all across the world.
