Assault Course Makeup Session
This year, due to the uncertainty and unpredictable nature of how COVID-19 would affect the training environment, Jack’s Valley make-up days were added to the end of the basic training schedule. These make-up days serve to allow for completion of training for those that were placed in quarantine, isolation, or faced unforeseen obstacles during BCT in direct response to the pandemic.
Assault Course :The Assault Course teaches hand-to-hand combat skills and rifle fighting techniques while allowing basic cadets to practice these elements in controlled scenarios and pugil-stick competitions. The second-half of the course requires basic cadets to demonstrate these skills by completing the pugil-stick competition and negotiating a course of 18 obstacles/stations and demonstrating hand-to-hand and rifle fighting techniques in a controlled, but mentally and physically challenging environment. The course is designed to assess basic cadets' mental and physical stamina and confidence.
Stay tuned for the other courses later this week.
