About JROTC

The Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) is a program put forth by the United States Armed Forces in high schools across the nation that train high school students in Leadership and Military Sciences. The program is entirely run by the cadets, with the assistance of two or more retired servicemen, a senior instructor (officer) and an assistant instructor (enlisted NCO, warrant officer, or commissioned officer of lesser rank). It is a military regulated high school program that educates high school students in leadership, self-confidence, and skills that can be applied to everyday life. The mission of JROTC is to motivate young people to become better American citizens.

Color Guard (Commander Brooke Holley )

The color guard is a four person team consisting of two cadets carrying the State and National flag and two cadets carrying rifles. The color guard team competes in district level competitions with the opportunity to move up to the state and national level provided they win. There are male, mixed, and female teams. Apart from the competitions, our color guard team performs for community and school events and at our home football games.

Drill (Commander Kasem Batul)

Commands the unit executes. The unit is judged based on how well they perform the given commands and compete in district level competitions with the opportunity to move up to the state and national level provided they win.

Drones (Commander Dante Sasaki)

Drones are the newest special team in JROTC. Here you will learn how to maintain and fly a drone. You also have the ability to earn your commercial drone license, allowing you to work as a drone operator in the state of Florida. Lee county has a local competition circuit where cadets race through an obstacle course against each other. There is also a competition circuit called RADC which can provide us the opportunity to compete in Texas. In the RADC circuit, you focus on using the drone to manipulate other objects.

Exhibition (Commander Kasem Batul)

Exhibition modifies standard drill by introducing and using exhibition rifles. The rifles can be thrown in the air and spun, adding flair to a normal drill routine. Cadets can compete as an individual, but also with a squad or platoon. What each unit does during competition is referred to as a routine and is unique to each school. They are judged based on how well they execute their routine. Cadets compete in district level competitions with the opportunity to move up to the state and national level provided they win. The exhibition team can also perform in public by pairing music with a routine.

JLAB (Devin Archibald)

The JROTC Leadership and Academic Bowl (JLAB) is a JROTC focused academic team. Like a normal academic team, they are asked questions. But instead of only being math or history, their questions can include JROTC topics like leadership characteristics and traits. If a JLAB team scores well enough, they can move on to the next level of competition, ultimately ending with the national competition held in Washington, D.C.

Raiders (Commander Benjamin Records)

The Raider team is JROTC’s athletic team. A normal JROTC competition consists of a 5k run, 1 mile Cross Country Rescue, Obstacle Course, Tire Flip, and Rope Bridge. There are 12 members on a team with 10 competing in each event. Raiders also place a heavy emphasis on teamwork as all five events are team events.
