It is a warm, lazy September Saturday and the stillness in the air is broken only by one sound: the sound of the Raider team hard at work. Working efficiently, like a group of ants, they quickly build a bridge over a once looming river gorge (or little woodland stream) and within seconds the team is across. This, and many other events like obstacle course and log carry, are all a part of being on the Raider team, a group of highly skilled individuals with extraordinary physical and teamwork skills. The Raider team trains together regularly, honing their physical talents to a high level of proficiency, to prepare for the rigors of competition. It takes more than being physically fit to be on the Raider team; one must be able to work well with others to complete the events required. Through hard work and self-determination, however, anyone can have the incredible experience of being a part of something greater than themselves: the Raider team. The work may be hard, the challenges difficult at times, but the experience is rewarding.
The Raider team performs at various competitions throughout the year, and in this current year has taken home First in many of the challenges in this year's Best Raider Competition. This includes First Place in the team run, beating the second-best team by just one second.
