The uniforms are issued at no charge to the student/family. The tailoring is done on the JROTC account free of charge to you (please see tailoring note).
A school physical is required for JROTC extracurricular activities. These activities include the drill teams, raider teams, athletic teams 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. Skip step 2 if you are only doing NJROTC. Do not turn in the physical to the JROTC staff. Please bring to the School athletic trainer (north or south main office for further directions).
All NJROTC after school "activities" require student's families to pay the activities/sports fee. This includes drill teams, color guard, academic team, physical fitness team, raider team, cadet challenge, and overnight trips. The fee is good for not only NJROTC but all activities and sports.
