- A school physical is required for NJROTC extracurricular activities. These activities include the drill teams, academic team, athletic team and all camps. The physical is good for one year and also fills the requirement for sports participation.
- Go to the Cherokee main web page and select the athletics department
- You will reach the "How to register for athletic Participation"
- Complete all steps if you are also playing a fall sport or Skip step 2 if you are only doing NJROTC
- Do not turn in the physical to the NJROTC staff. Please bring to the School athletic trainer located at the (north or south) main office for further directions
- All NJROTC after school "activities" require student's families to pay the annual activities/sports fee. This includes drill teams, color guard, academic team, physical fitness team, raider team, cadet challenge, and all overnight trips. Once paid, the fee is good for all school activities and sports.
