Ranger Challenge is an extracurricular, close-knit group of individuals who compete annually in a multi-state competition. Cadets from 10 schools across the region compete for the annual title of Ranger Challenge Competition Winner and take home the trophy. Ranger Challenge focuses heavily on physical fitness, and practice a variety of military events including Rope Bridge, land navigation, ruck marching, hand grenade assault course, weapons assembly/disassembly, and individual movement techniques to prepare for the annual event. They must demonstrate technical and tactical proficiency in several events to include call for fire, evaluate a casualty, apply first aid, run 5 miles in under 40 minutes, pass a PT Test scoring 80 points in each event, and successfully pass a land navigation course.
