The Drill Team is an extracurricular organization that aids participants in the practice, performance, and perfection of Navy and Marine Corps close order drill. Participation instills discipline through the practice of precision, the development of automatic responses to drill commands, and the enhancement of military bearing. The team allows midshipmen to improve and perfect their self-confidence through the repetition and mastery of military drill. As a member of the Drill Team, one’s ultimate goal is to continue the team’s success at regional drill meets. The team competes in both Platoon and Squad drill competitions and trains its members to be competitive in both armed and unarmed drill.
