Jacks Valley Day 1
Each of the 4 squadrons did a course today and they will rotate to each of the courses throughout the week.
Assault, Confidence and Obstacle course photos will be edited and uploaded the day they take place. The squadron that does CBRNE on that day will have those photos edited and the blog put up the following day. This is due to it running into the evening and we are not able to get the photos edited and uploaded with the other squadrons.
Below is a description each course and which squadron was running the course.
Note: There were two photographers at Assault and Obstacle Course. The photos were uploaded by photographer, not by section. You might want to scroll through all the pages because you may find your Basic further in the photos than you might otherwise think.
Assault Course: Demons - 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.
Confidence Course: Cobras - The Confidence Course develops and assesses basic cadets' self-confidence and physical capabilities by guiding them, as individuals and teams, through a selected group of 15 obstacles which vary in height and difficulty. The course requires all basic cadets to demonstrate physical dexterity, teamwork, and cohesion to achieve successful outcomes.
Obstacle Course: Barbarians - The Obstacle Course will teach and require basic cadets to negotiate 17 physically-challenging obstacles. It is designed to assess their physical fitness, agility, confidence and increase awareness of personal capabilities. The first time through the Obstacle Course is the orientation run. The second time through the Obstacle Course basic cadets are timed.
