DrillNATION magazine remains an annual publication which spawned the DrillNATION.net website several years ago. DrillNATION.net is without parallel, allowing like-minded cadets, instructors and parents to have a voice and share a community that is dovoted to the many iteams that are passionate to these individuals. Real-time, chat, newsgroups and message boauds, competition links, and many other amazing items are available at the click of a mouse, all in a moderated forum for safe and easy use..
The DrillNATION magazine annually also features a detailed analysis of the Army Nationals, the Army Junior ROTC Championship, the NJROTC Academic, Athletic and Drill Championship, and the Air Force-only Air Force JROTC National Drill Championship. All of these fine JROTC drill competitions are managed by Sports Network International. Additional JROTC events such as the Nationals Drill Camp and the U.S. Army Nationals Raider Challenge events are also featured. These events annually bring together a solid corps of hard-working Junior ROTC cadets from all walks of life. In the 2015 magazine, the SNI Informational DVD was included to give viewers a look at the rich history and broad offerings made available from SNI to programs worldwide.
While the magazine features many items, nothing within the pages of DrillNATION is more sought after than the scores, photographs, results and highlights from the recently completed Nationals competition. This includes the center spread of DrillNATION which contains the official invitation to attend the following year Nationals. The internationally famous Nationals event is held each year in the late Spring at the Ocean Center Arena & Conference Center in sunny Daytona Beach, Florida.
The DrillNATION Magazine, as well as the DrillNATION.net website, attempts to provide the finest cadets in the world the proper showcase to glorify their talents and give to them the recognition they richly deserve. The dedication and sacrifice these cadets, instructors and parents undertake on their quest for excellence is noteworthy. Sports Network International strongly believes that the DrillNATION platform provides the perfect vehicle to showcase the outstanding drill programs that annually make the trip from across the United States to attend the premier drill competition in the world, the National High School Drill Team Championships.
