A Squad Practice is any exercise in which a Squad takes part as a hole. The purpose of this type of exercise is threefold: First, it offers Squad members the chance to get accustomed to their weapons, roles and equipment so that they will know how to properly operate them. Secondly, this can provide soldiers with an opportunity to participate in a realistic scenario, because sometimes scenarios are setup to give hands-on experience. Thirdly it offers an opportunity for Squad members to learn how to work together.
It is mandatory for all Right to Rebel Competitive personnel to attend 1 Squad practice a week. Squad Leaders are responsible for organizing each section training and drafting a Squad Training Plan (STP) to be posted, in advance of the scheduled training session, for their troopers to read, understand and prepare if necessary.
Squad Training Plan
The STP shall include the following:
- Training Material: Include any material (reading or pictures) required to complete the training (ex. Map pictures with names)
- Training Plan: A description of the planned activities, including drills, maps to be used, etc. in order to complete the training (ex. Squad will tour maps X, Y, and Z and call out the names of the different areas)
Training After Action Report
Training After Action Report (TAAR) will be included in the weekly Roll call post. The Post Training Assessment element is the SL’s assessment of how successful the training session was. The SL should include things such as lessons learned (things that went right and/or wrong), future improvements, performance of the troops, etc.
Training After Action Report: Practice Date: (xx/xx/xx)
Training Material: (Specify or link training material used)
Training Plan: (Specify what was the plan/goal for the training session)
Post Training Assessment: (Briefly state what was accomplished in the training session, summarize how your troopers performed, and state what went right, what went wrong, and any lessons learned.)
