Drill is an important part of cadet training. Drill promotes discipline, alertness, precision, pride, steadiness, and the cohesion necessary for success within a group.
From a leadership perspective, drill is an excellent vehicle to help enhance some personal attributes. A senior cadet's assertiveness, confidence in his/her abilities while speaking in front of a group, and supervisory skills while correcting personnel on their dress and personal drill all benefit from drill instruction.
Any cadet, from any level, may try out for the Drill Team.

Be present at each practice.
Give 100% effort 100% of the time
