Ranger Challenge

 

Ranger Challenge

Ranger Challenge is called the “varsity sport” of Army ROTC. Focusing on the basic infantry skills, Squad-sized teams compete against other schools in the region on their abilities in rifle marksmanship, constructing a rope-bridge, patrolling, the Army Physical Fitness Test, land navigation, and a 12 mile road march.

The competition takes place during the Fall in Oregon, and all Cadets in good academic standing are invited to take part.

 

Ranger Challenge Cadets PT five times a week separate from the rest of the Battalion, in order to train for the required skills in the competition.
