JLAB Practice

Academic Team

Cadets learn Naval knowledge during class, and our Academic team puts that information to work. During practice, students challenge each other's understanding of naval science through a variety of Gimkits, Kahoots, Family Feud, and Jeopardy-like games. We have found that this approach is the most effective way for cadets to memorize, understand, and apply naval science in their education. Our goal for this team is to teach students how to socialize, take care of time, and study for upcoming tests.

Billy Goat O-Meet

Orienteering Team

The Orienteering Team teaches our students land navigation by using a map and compass. Cadets venture across the school's campus, fields, and forests to find control points that are scattered on a map. In addition to learning navigational skills, the team also focuses on building endurance and strength through various mile runs, 40-yard dashes, and workout cards. We aim to encourage cadets to create healthy habits and overcome challenges that shape quality characteristics.

Shoulder-to-Shoulder Competition

Rifle Team

We entrust our diligent cadets to safely use our rifles and build their skills to become excellent marksmen! At the beginning of each semester, we host tryouts with 16 available spots. In order to qualify for the team, candidates must undergo training and tests to evaluate their current abilities. Once the team members have been decided, each cadet enhances their aim and precision in the three rifle positions: Prone, Kneeling, and Standing. As opposed to other teams, our Marksmanship program promotes a sense of patience and perseverance that'll benefit our students in the future. We are confident that this team will shape cadets to endure challenges and seek out their goals after they graduate from high school.

Cyber Patriots

Recently, numerous cyberattacks have infiltrated the United States. In order to deal with these attacks, the Air Force has established a program for JROTC cadets called Cyber Patriots. Students learn how to build and secure networks, as well as recognize the importance of cyber security. By utilizing these skills, our cadets participate in competitions that range from regional to national levels. Unlike other teams within the unit, students have the possibility of receiving scholarship money for their college experience. We hope our cadets will use the knowledge they've learned to find potential career options and fight against Cyber-Warfare.

Pee Dee Drill Meet

Drill Team

All JROTC programs focus on improving cadets’ ability to work together in a team environment, including marching in squads and platoons. Although marching techniques are taught during class, the drill team provides additional feedback and guidance for students. During practice, cadets are grouped together based on their grade level and drill capabilities. Students learn how to properly perform columns, flanks, halts, and facing movements. While this team challenges cadets to maintain a straight face, critique small mistakes and receive constructive criticism, students also build courage, step outside of their comfort zone, and understand the importance of teamwork.

SeaPerch Practice

Sea Perch Team

The art of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics have become extremely crucial in our society. For the Navy especially, the military needs educated men and women to design and program robots that'll improve the country's national defense. With this in mind, we understand the importance of STEM programs, and we introduced our SeaPerch team without hesitation. Cadets learn to create underwater robots that can withstand obstacles, barriers, and water currents. As with many robotics teams, SeaPerch offers an effective approach to coding, designing, and building machines that will expand students' interests. We aspire to provide students with the learning environment they deserve to fully understand their talents, creativity, and potential!

Drone Practice

Drone Team

Recently, our NJROTC unit introduced the drone team to allow cadets to control and program drones. As students learn how to use coordinates and remote controllers to fly devices, they begin to use drones to navigate numerous barriers. Cadets meet with other students to challenge each other’s abilities to manage drones in various obstacle courses. We hope that by establishing this team, cadets will find career opportunities to operate more advanced airborne devices!
