Drill Team Drama

NEISD.net Unarmed Drill TeamDrillMaster,

My JROTC unit recently formed a drill team but there is so much drama, no one is happy with anything. Is there any advice you could give me so that I can end the drama and continue drill without having to leave upset?

The commanders are busy with color guard the cadet in charge is as childish as all the others and it doesn’t help that I’m the only girl. I don’t want to quit because I love it but at this point I don’t know what to do anymore. We all argue so much that we barely practice and we have a competition in about a month I really want us all to do well.

Hello Cadet P,

Teenagers = drama, in general. Who is the Commander? Leadership is required here to establish what happens at practice, etc.

My website, www.thedrillmaster.org, has tons of good info for you as well as my books. The team’s leadership and the team members need to educate themselves as to how to practice, where to begin and how to create a routine.

Communication is necessary. Go to my site, read about how to create a routine and then go to the downloads page and print out some routine mapping tools and anything else you’d like. Take the info in to school and show the team members that you have a desire for success.

Any questions you may have, please let me know.
