Drill

Drill is the synchronized, precision movements of a body of personnel which may include the use of arms (rifles).

The benefits of drill include:

  • Team building
  • Leadership amongst peers
  • Patience
  • Discipline
  • Focus

The Canadian Cadet Program offers Cadets the opportunity to participate as a member of a competition level drill team. Cadets on the drill team meet weekly to practice compulsory and supplementary performances which may be displayed at competitions at the regional, provincial, and national levels.

Drill is used at the local level to organize groups of cadets and to put on ceremonial parades. As cadets advance their skills in drill as well as the maintenance of their uniforms, they have the opportunity to begin commanding these groups of cadets.

Should cadets find that they really enjoy drill, there are opportunities to pursue it at a more advanced level at summer training centers for three or six weeks. At these summer courses cadets will participate in various ceremonies to learn new and intriguing types of drill.
