The All-Service Raider Challenge Championships lead the way in showcasing the finest, most hard working JROTC Raider teams in the nation. The Raider Nationals Weekend annually attracts many of the best Male, Female and Mixed JROTC Raider teams in the country. This single-day Championship event will be a strong test of your worthy program. The Raider Challenge Championships are an offshoot of the wildly popular Army JROTC Raider Service Championships held the day following this event. Unwilling to continue to turn away quality programs from all services, SNI began this inclusive event to give your all-service Raider teams the finest overall competition they could ever be a part of. This event is designed to give the biggest and best spotlight on all-service Raiders who look to attend from across the United States.
The Raider Nationals weekend was never designed to be the LARGEST Raider competition held anywhere in the world, 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!

The upcoming Raider Challenge Championships are expected to host ROUGHLY 35-40 teams and 500 cadets and instructors from all services and many parts of the United States. Numerous teams have already called and asked about inclusion so we expect a full competition field again this year. Special thanks go out to all of the teams who have come before this year who have given great effort and much needed feedback to make the upcoming event even BETTER! We at the Raider Nationals love to give the teams the publicity they deserve! Take a few minutes to look through the website to learn more. Become part of the event fun with postings on the official Raider Nationals Facebook Page where hundreds of event photos and videos are posted annually.
The Gerald Lawhorn Scouting Base continues to serve as the gracious host for this championship event. Weather is the same every year....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!
THE DATE & LOCATION IS SET AND HISTORY WILL BE MADE!
The Raider Nationals continue to make history every year as we expect nearly 4,000 parents, instructors and cadets to take part in this weekend test of leadership, athletics and teamwork! For those who make themselves a part of this event, your support of these tremendous young men and women help to make the Raider Nationals the special place it has quickly become!
IF YOUR SCHOOL IS PLANNING TO ATTEND THE EVENT, READ THROUGH THE SITE WHEN MATERIALS ARE POSTED AFTER 1 JUNE. By rewarding those schools who plan early and make the effort to register and complete required money and paperwork issues early, the competition field is always well-prepared, spirited, highly motivated and hugely talented. LAST YEAR MANY SCHOOLS WAITED TO REGISTER UNTIL JUST THE WEEKS PRIOR AND WERE TURNED AWAY! IF YOU PLAN TO ATTEND, REGISTER EARLY, PREPARE AND MAKE YOUR SCHOOL A PART OF THE EXCITEMENT!
