Physical Training

Physical Training is a major part of the NJROTC Program at Gloucester High School and constitutes 15% of each students grade

Starting with the 2014/2015 School Year: First year students in our program will be awarded two credits: 1 Credit for NJROTC AND 1 Credit for 9th grade health & Physical Education. 

One of the major goals of the NJROTC Program is to instill within cadets an appreciation for the benefits of physical exercise and a desire to develop a personal physical fitness program to remain fit for life.   Toward that end cadets participate in physical fitness training each Thursday and Friday weather permitting. These activities include: stretching, calisthenics, running, and various sporting activities.  Once per quarter cadets will be provided an opportunity to participate in the Physical Fitness Test and earn awards for specific levels of achievement.
