Marksmanship begins the First week of December in B209 at 6:30 am!
The type of rifle marksmanship taught and practiced in the JROTC program is a three-position air rifle shooting done with 4.5 mm (.177 cal.) air rifles with the targets placed at a distance of 10 meters.
Target rifle shooting involves firing in three different positions: standing, kneeling, and prone. These shooting positions originated with firing positions that once were taught to warriors and soldiers and were used in battle or hunting. Today, these traditional firing positions have evolved into specific shooting situations that are part of target shooting and are defined by competition rules globally.
The Academic team is part of the MAP season at the Lancer Battalion. It consists of three competitions where two teams, varsity, and junior varsity, compete against other programs in Massachusetts to test our academic and JROTC knowledge. Each unit consists of a maximum of five cadets.
