Unarmed Drill Team Summary
Ribbon REQs: Active, participate in 3 events
The Unarmed Drill Team is one of our very competitive teams. Similar to the armed drill teams, Unarmed Drill includes two different teams, Unarmed Basic Drill and Unarmed Exhibition Drill. Each team competes at drill meets throughout the school year in order to qualify for the Area 12 Regional Drill Meet where they compete against the best teams in our NJROTC region.
Performed without the Springfield Drilling Rifle, the Unarmed Drill Team has found other ways to display their talent. Using synchronized marching, head-turning beats, complicated hand movements, perfected marching, and of course, perfect military bearing, they show off their talent to others. It looks easy, but it takes a while to master the moves and execute them sharply. This is a great way to get involved in the unit.
The Unarmed Basic drill team focuses on formation in-place and marching drill while not under arms. Events are similar to Armed Drill team events. Regulation drill covers a drill card memorized by the team commander and regulated by the cadet field manual.
The Unarmed Exhibition drill is judged looking for the same qualities as regulation drill, with extra movements and sequences for show.
In the 2021-22 academic year, LPK NJROTC Drill Team placed in the top 3 in local competition and placed 6th in the regional championship.
