Recognizing that I volunteered as a Belleview RAIDER, fully knowing that challenges of my chosen team, I will always uphold the prestige, honor and high "esprit de corps" of my RAIDER Team and our Rattler Corps. Acknowledging the fact that a Belleview RAIDER is a more elite cadet who arrives at the cutting edge of competition ready to compete, I accept the fact that as a Belleview RAIDER, my JROTC unit expects me to move farther, faster and work harder than any other cadet.
I shall never fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong, academically focused and morally straight and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be.
Diligently will I demonstrate that I am a specially selected and well-trained cadet. My courtesy to superior officers, neatness of dress, academic performance and care of equipment shall set the example for others to follow.
Energetically will I meet the competition. I shall prevail for I am better trained and will work with all my might. Forfeit is not a Belleview RAIDER word and the word quit is not in my vocabulary. I will never leave a fellow Belleview RAIDER behind on the field of competition and under no circumstances will I ever embarrass my unit.
Readily I will display the intestinal fortitude required to accomplish my Belleview RAIDER objective and complete my assigned mission.
If cadets are interested in applying for ROTC scholarships, they will have to take a PT test. This test is given during the beginning of their senior year. Cadets should start training for the PT test no later than the spring of their junior year. Cadets should research service-specific PT standards. As a general guideline, a cadet should be able to score a 90+ on the under-30 USAF standards. See linked PDF above. Males should be able to at a minimum, run 1.5 miles at an 8:00 minute pace (12 min for 1.5 miles), do 60+ push-ups in a minute, and do 55+ sit-ups in a minute. Females should be able to, at a minimum, run 1.5 miles at a 9:00 minutes 30 seconds pace (14 min 15 sec for 1.5 miles), do 40+ push-ups in a minute, and do 45+ sit-ups in a minute. Cadets should strive to max their score on as many components as possible.
If a cadet is considering enlisting, they should research service-specific PT standards. For the USAF standards, refer to the PDF linked above. For the USAF, if an individual can score 90+, they will have an easier time in basic training.
