Being a Raider takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and physical training.
Raiders compete in 5 events: Combat Cross Country Run, Academic Test,
Rope Bridge and a 3-mile Team Run.
These are extremely demanding activities, and you need to be in good shape
and health to participate. The activities also take a lot of mental concentration.
Being a member of the Drill Team takes a lot of hard work.
You really need to be able to concentrate, whether you are the commander
of the event or just being a part of the event. It also takes dedication and practice.
Dedicating your heart and your mind to what you love doing will result in great success.
