The purpose for Ranger Challenge Program is to challenge cadets in tough mental and physical competition, enhance leader development, develop team cohesion, and to develop healthy competition among the battalions. Each year, top cadets from around the country gather to compete in Army ROTC's varsity sport: the ROTC Ranger Challenge.
This voluntary competition offers outstanding teamwork training while demanding your best physical and mental efforts. Events include land navigation skills to find points over a course, Army physical fitness test, and constructing a one-rope bridge, in which teams cross a 40-foot water obstacle using a single rope and plenty of ingenuity.
Other events include the grenade assault course, leader's reaction course, water confidence course, obstacle course, trauma lanes, and a 10K road march.
