WE FULLY EXPECT 20+ STATES and over 2,000 ARMY
JROTC CADETS, INSTRUCTORS, SPECTATORS AND PARENTS
TO MAKE THE 2021 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 finest, most hard working Army JROTC Raider teams in the nation. The Raider Nationals Weekend annually attracts many of the best Male, Female and Mixed Army JROTC Raider teams in the country. The best of the best Army JROTC programs compete within the two-day U.S. Army JROTC Raider National Championship. For all-service Raider teams including Freshmen Army Raider teams or smaller programs unable to qualify to compete for the Army Championship, the one-day All-Service Raider Challenge Championships are held on Friday, the day prior to the Army 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!

Raider Teams! Compete on the BEACH in MAY

The upcoming Army Raider Nationals are expected to host 80-90 teams and roughly 1,500 cadets, packing the competition site from morning to night! Special thanks to all the teams who gave great effort and much needed feedback in past years to make the upcoming event even BETTER! With the addition of the smaller, less competitive single-day All-Service Raider Challenge Championships the day prior, we look forward to hosting Raider teams of all skill levels from across the USA!

Take a few minutes to look through the website to learn more. Complete top to bottom scoring reports are now posted as well as team photos, action photos and awards pictures on the Photoreflect Homepage. Even more action photos have been posted on the official Raider Nationals Facebook Page.

The Gerald Lawhorn Scouting Base continues to serve as the gracious host for this championship event. Moving the event this year to to the very late February date will make the weather fantastic! Almanac says to expect a high temperature of around 65 in the shade with an average low of about 40 degrees with almost zero statistical chance of snow. Crisp and chilly in the morning followed by jacket-stripping-off warmth in the afternoon! The Lawhorn Scouting facility remains the premiere Raider facility in the Eastern 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! We expect Army, Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force schools to light the course on fire!
