The Ranger Challenge competition is held every year during the fall semester and includes a 10-mile course with Aid and Litter, hand grenade assault course, patrolling exam, written land navigation, land navigation, commander’s challenge (mystery event), recon event, obstacle course, and marksmanship to name a few of the events.
Tryouts take place during the first two weeks of the fall semester. The Ranger Company Commander and First Sergeant pick up to 15-18 Cadets to participate in Ranger Company training throughout the semester. The cadets who are in Ranger Company are the most mentally and physically fit in the program. Tryouts are open to anybody in the program who is interested.
