National High School Drill Team Championships 2013

The National High School Drill Team Championships were a big hit yet again! Drillers and teams from all over the country, Guam and Hawaii came to showoff their skills. Some teams left with trophies, others left with great pride in knowing they had done their best.

The picture at left is of me having a long and very good discussion about everything under the sun with a drill team coach. We will be working together in the future in honor guard and drill team endeavors.

The two gentlemen in the picture at right (C/Lt Cdr Jacob Lindsey and C/Lt JG Tevion Gray) are from St Louis, Missouri and attend the Cleveland Jr. Naval Academy. What’s remarkable about these two fine cadets is that they are on their school’s drill team and the team was not doing very well at competitions, this is until they bought Exhibition Drill for the Military Drill Team- both volumes. Interestingly, once they read both of my books, according to Cadet Lindsey, they began to have a better understanding as to what exhibition drill was about and the team began to sweep all of their drill meets in SY12/13! Yes, they swept the drill meets. As I constantly say, education is key- and this proves my point!

Now owns a copy of each one of my books that I had available at my table, all except The DrillMaster: Filling in the Gaps, because I had just published it on the Friday before. MSgt Harwell, stopped by after Step II had a good rehearsal and purchased the books. I had the distinct opportunity to pray for my brother in Christ and I pray that he finds joy and contentment as he moves on in life.

I’m looking forward to seeing you all next year at competitions around the country and then in Daytona!

JROTC Class Regulation Drill Sequences
Each JROTC has an annual inspection and for that inspection the inspector watches each class (platoon or flight) go through a sequence of commands. Some JROTC units use a standardized sequence from a drill competition and some use a sequence created for first-year JROTC cadets.

I decided to create score sheets for the latter based on the World Drill Association Adjudication system.

Army JROTC Squad Drill Overall Effect Score Sheet

Navy/Marine Corps/Coast Guard JROTC Overall Effect Score Sheet*

Air Force Overall Effect Score Sheet

JROTC Regulation Drill Sequence Movement Score Sheet

JROTC Regulation Drill Sequence Equipment Score Sheet

*I could not find any kind of sequence that is mandatory for NJROTC/MCJROTC, but I did find an annual inspection letter with some guidance, so I included that here.

If you desire to use any of these score sheets for your unit, please do so, you have my permission. You may not make changes to the sheets, however. To learn more about the World Drill Association Adjudication¬† System, click here. If you’d like any changes to be made or want a set of score sheets made for your unit/competition, please don’t hesitate to let me know!
