JROTC Drill Team is the movement component of the JROTC programs. Knightdale High School “Drill” team is a team of mentally tough Cadets who train to compete regionally in Drill competitions in a series of ordered events.


The specific events may differ from competition to competition, but typically consist of:
 

Unarmed Squad – Unarmed Squad consists of a team of 7 highly developed cadets who specifically train and prepare for any and all unarmed squad competitions. This squad drill segment is unarmed, which means that there are no rifles involved in this routine.
