Free Community Event

Saturday, December 9, 2023

Held at West Creek High School

Hosted by the West Creek High School Coyote Regiment, the JROTC Red River Brigade Championships will be held on Saturday, December 9, 2023. Events will occur inside and outside West Creek High School, 1210 West Creek Coyote Trail. This event is free and open to the public. The community is invited to watch and cheer for the cadets from all eight traditional CMCSS high schools. Cadets from Tennessee, Kentucky, and Michigan will be competing.

Teams will participate in Drill, Raider, and Air Rifle competitions. Representatives from college ROTC programs, Army equipment static displays, food trucks, and more will be on site. An awards ceremony will be held when all events are complete. Students interested in participating in JROTC are welcome to speak with school leaders to learn more about the programs offered within CMCSS.

Cadets will participate in either Drill, Raider, or Air Rifle competitions. Drill is a marching unit that performs routines based on military drills. Cadets can perform either armed or unarmed drills during competitive drill competitions. Raider competitions are very popular athletic and endurance competitions that have been compared to Ranger competitions at the college level. Air Rifle teams compete at varying distances in marksmanship competitions.

Students do not have to participate in JROTC to be eligible for ROTC in college. Students interested in learning more about the benefits of ROTC college programs can speak with the college representatives on-site at the event, including the University of Tennessee-Martin, Murray State ROTC, Austin Peay State University ROTC, Virginia Military Institute, and more.
