SMA JROTC Bear Battalion Teams

JROTC teams and extra-curricular activities hold drills/practices on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the morning (6:15-7:15 a.m.) and in the afternoon (3:50-4:50 p.m.) Among these activities are the following:

Color Guard

Color Guard consists of four members: an American Flag, Texas Flag, and two guards. Our team presents or posts colors at different events such as football games, school and community ceremonies, etc.

For information on scheduling a Color Guard for your community event, please contact the JROTC office at 512-753-8071.

Marksmanship Team

Marksmanship cadets practice at the Rifle Range at Davidson Hall. The group will compete at some meets during the year.

Sabre Guard

Sabre Guards are used to provide a formal introduction for participants during special events. Sabre Guard practices the week before they are scheduled for performance.

Drill Team

The Armed Drill Team is an extremely disciplined group of dedicated cadets who practice and perform silent rifle routines during Parent Days, special JROTC functions (Dining Out, Veteran's Day Parade, etc.), and competitions. The Armed Drill Team routines consist of a number of uniform Manual of Arms moves and difficult spins that show the skill and strength of each cadet. The team members use demilitarized Springfield rifles without slings that weigh 8.5 lbs.

Physical Training (PT) Team

The PT Team is a physical fitness team that competes at meets to outscore other teams by how many push ups and sit ups they do. Along with that total, they complete an 800 meter run. We train in the areas of physical fitness so that we can keep what we learned for next-year team, while at the same time helping ourselves to be above average physically for next year.
