At the heart of a Squadron’s esprit de corps on parade is drill. Some of the skills you will learn are personal discipline, coordination, and teamwork.
The Drill Team is composed of 13 or 18 cadets led by a Drill Team Commander.
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.
