• Fitness Teams- Specialize in Push-ups, Sit-ups, and typically recruits fast runners for the relay at regular competitions. There may be opportunities to compete in strictly athletic meets.

Orienteering - Teams of cadets that learn how to navigate the land using only a map and a compass. The team then divides into pairs to test what they have learned against other JROTC units.
