TJ JROTC 8th Battalion
Our competition drill team travels to compete against other schools at multiple drill meets in 4 different events. The events include Exhibition, basically a freestyle competition where we can do whatever we want, Regulation, where we must follow the given commands exactly, and Inspection, where our uniforms and rifles are inspected carefully. There's also color guard who in addition to competitions perform at events such as the homecoming football game and teachers conference.
Honor Platoon is a team that is offered by the JROTC program where cadets gather creativity skills, teamwork skills, and exhibition skills.Made up of around 15 girls, we practice and work hard to get to nationals in Daytona beach, Florida. We have many competitions where eventually we get to prove to get a spot in nationals. When we get to Florida we have 3 days of competition and we get to celebrate the last day in Universal Studios. We also have mini get togethers with the team to have team bonding time. Such as a Christmas party, Tie-Dye hoodies and potlucks.

This is the first year we've had a raider team at TJ in a long time so it's just getting started up, but we have opportunities to travel to Wyoming and Florida. The practices are before school once every other week. It is a team sport that involves a relay race where you and your team will all do sit-ups, pull-ups, push-ups, and a half mile run.
