Incline JROTC hosting annual cadet leadership challenge

Special to the Bonanza

The Incline Highlander JROTC will be hosting its annual cadet leadership challenge (JCLC) on June 2-6.

This leadership challenge consists of land navigation, obstacle courses, leadership reaction course, road marches, physical fitness courses, rappelling and more.

The objectives are to provide cadets an opportunity to practice leadership skills in an unfamiliar environment; allow cadets to participate in citizenship building exercises; give cadets the opportunity to experience living and interacting with their peers from other schools in a leadership development setting; instruct leadership-type skills to cadets in a "hands-on" leader reaction type environment; provide an opportunity to participate in adventure training that is not normally available to cadets; to take advantage of recreational facilities available; and most importantly to have fun.

The Incline Highlander battalion will perform its portion of the challenge on May 30.

From June 2-6, all schools from Reno with the JROTC program will participate in the challenge, bringing 50 cadets per school. Two schools will compete each day.

JCLC is a required annual event for the army ROTC. The cadets will be dressed in their army camouflage uniform. After the JCLC, all the cadets who attended will be provided with a reward cookout at the Village Green.
