Organization / Duties / Responsibilities
The Raiders Team Captain is normally a LET III or IV selected by the Instructor with the input of the Raider Team. The Captain will lead the Platoon, by setting the example on all matters and keep the team focused on the task at hand. He/She will march the team to training sites, maintain the attendance, conduct uniform inspections, instruct classes, organize camp-outs, and assist in physical training and tests. He/She will also work with CSM Placeres to coordinate teams (male, female, mixed), training in preparation for competition and adventure training.
The Raiders Team will consist of 3 units: male, female, and mixed. Each team will have designated no more than 12 cadets per unit and each unit will have its own leader. The goal is to have enough cadets to have a mixed, female and male team. Recruiting of new cadets will be at the beginning of 1st semester.
