Drill- Drill team is more than marching. You learn to keep
your bearing, you become very competitive with schools throughout Brevard County, and
you learn excellent leadership skills. We also have Exhibition which is marching
and doing a routine while spinning, and tossing a 8 pound Springfield 1903 A3 rifle.
