TO MAKE THE UPCOMING ARMY RAIDER NATIONALS THE GREATEST
GATHERING OF ARMY-ONLY RAIDER EXCELLENCE EVER ASSEMBLED!
The U.S. Army JROTC Raider National Championships continue to lead the way in showcasing many of the hard working Army JROTC Raider teams in the nation. The Raider Nationals Weekend annually attracts over 100 Raider teams from across the USA. The best of the best Army JROTC programs compete within the three-day U.S. Army JROTC Raider National Championship. The
MASTERS DIVISION of the Weekend is a two-day event featuring many of the best Male, Female and Mixed Army JROTC Raider teams. The single-day CHALLENGE DIVISION event brings together often the smaller and younger programs in the Male and Mixed Divisions to compete with programs on a more equal footing. Also, some smaller Army programs or less competeive ASrmy Raider teams with Female programs can opt to compete in the one-day All-Service Raider Challenge Championships held on event weekend Thursday, the day prior to the kickoff of the Army JROTC Raider Championships. The Army JROTC "Raider Nationals" serve as the official Army Championship for the top Raider program nationally. This event continues to give the Army the huge spotlight on their best and brightest in the world of Raider.
The Raider Nationals weekend was never designed to be the LARGEST Raider competition held anywhere in the world (while it surely IS!), but years of excellence have continued to make this event both the largest event anywhere, and home of the FINEST and MOST MOTIVATED Raider teams anywhere in the ever-expanding Raider universe!

Special thanks to all the teams who gave great effort and much needed feedback in past years to make the upcoming event even BETTER!

The Gerald Lawhorn Scouting Base continues to serve as the gracious host for this championship event. Our November date gives us a "Crisp and chilly in the morning followed by jacket-stripping-off warmth in the afternoon" forecast most years.
The Lawhorn Scouting facility remains the premiere Raider facility in the United States for reasons almost too numerous to list. This site gives all who attend a special, big-time feel that can only be generated when the best Male, Female and Mixed Division teams from across the United States come out to participate! : Paid Parking will be in effect for spectators attending the event competition days!
