Teamwork and Competition

Ranger Challenge is the Army ROTC Varsity Sport. Teams form early in the semester and train rigorously nearly every morning of the week. Ranger Challenge team members accomplish more before 0800 then most college students accomplish in an entire day. Teams train all the way up until the Brigade Ranger Challenge Competition. This competition is conducted over two days on a non-tactical course. The mission is to challenge cadets' mental and physical toughness and to develop leadership while fostering teamwork and esprit-de-corps. Teams participate in graded events such as: Basic Rifle Marksmanship, Day & Night Orienteering, M-16 Disassembly/Assembly, Grenade Assault Course, Written Land Navigation Test, and Army Physical Fitness Test.
 
In 2019, SFA Ranger Challenge placed first at the Task Force Tomahawk Ranger Challenge Competition held at Fort Hood. The team then placed second place at the Apache Brigade Head-to-Head Ranger Competition. Ranger Challenge continued to train for the Sandhurst Military Skills Competition (U.S. Military Academy), until all things came to a halt with the Covid-19 pandemic that hit the U.S. Only 16 teams out of 274 ROTC programs qualified.
