AFJROTC Activities

  • DRILL TEAM: The drill team is an essential part of the AFJROTC program. It is designed to encourage cadets to participate in school, community, and ROTC projects. These activities improve students’ abilities as leaders, followers, and most important as young adults. As a member of the NC-948 Drill Team, the cadets are taught how to drill using military regulations and modified commands while learning how to maintain military bearing. Emphasis is placed upon observation, learning, and performing. The drill team may begin practice weeks before school opens in the fall and will become very active during the year. Drill team members attend various drill competitions, parades, and perform wherever its services are needed in the community. Cadets are recommended for membership by the cadet staff and approved by the SASI/ASI.
    AWARENESS PRESENTATION TEAM: APT is an organization that raises awareness among younger students at local middle and elementary schools about the importance of teamwork and community. This group also recruits students to join JROTC and will often perform a drill sequence to inspire the younger students to enhance their learning experience by joining JROTC.

    AWARDS BANQUET: The Awards Banquet is an annual, formal event in which male cadets wear their dress uniforms, female cadets where formal dresses, and attend the function at various locations. The purpose of the banquet is to expose cadets to a formal military social event, which affords the opportunity to practice social graces and military protocol.
    CURRICULUM IN ACTION (CIA) FIELD TRIPS: Field trips are available to all cadets who maintain good standing in AFJROTC. These include trips to military bases, museums, college campuses, etc. The trips are designed to expand your knowledge about the aerospace environment in which we live. There will be local one-day trips during each semester. Cadets must be academically eligible and have written parental/guardian approval to participate.
    SOCIAL ACTIVITIES: The unit participates in informal picnics, parties, and other social activities to help cadets become better acquainted with each other and have a good positive recreational experience. All official AFJROTC activities must be approved by the SASI/ASI.
    LOCAL PARADES: NC-948 often participates in several parades throughout Beaufort county. These include the Veterans Day and the Christmas, Parades.

    Note: All AFJROTC sponsored events require parental/guardian approval and supervision by the SASI/ASI. When school-sponsored transportation is provided, cadets are expected to travel and return on the school-sponsored transportation. Exceptions to this rule require prior written approval by parents/guardians.
