JROTC Teams at Riverside
Drill Team/Color Guard
Our Drill Team, the Fusiliers, participates in competitive programs to demonstrate precision drill and ceremony skills. Team members must be present for practice each day due to the precision that must be attained for competition. The team is in demand out of season for other RMA events and must practice in order to perform successfully.
Riverside's Color Guard promotes pride, citizenship, and respect through the display of the flag. This group of young men represents the Academy at many community events in the northeast Georgia region and throughout the State of Georgia.
