Drill is Fancy Walking A drill team is a group of cadets who perform in ceremonies or competitions by demonstrating their skill and precision in the execution of specific movements in accordance to commands. Drill, however, is not as complicated as it sounds; in fact, it's easy! If you think about it like fancy walking, after all, it's a cakewalk. In other words, a Drill Team is a group of people who do drill in order to win competitions and show off the skill of the MO81st.
What Drill Teams are There? The MO81st offers a main drill team: the exhibition / regulation team.
What are the Requirements? Only Missouri 81st cadets are allowed to be members of any drill team — however, no cadet has to be a member of a team, as it is purely optional. However, drill is integral to the building of character and can effectively teach cadets discipline if they're willing to learn it.
The current POC (Person of Contact) for Drill is Andrea Olsen.
