    Event details





    Ranger School is one of the toughest training courses for which a Soldier can volunteer. Army Rangers are experts in leading Soldiers on difficult missions— and to do this they need rigorous training. Over 3 phases, Ranger students train to exhaustion, pushing the limits of their minds and skills.

    Ranger School teaches members leadership skills in a 12-16 hour high intensity course with classroom teaching, controlled group exercises, and practical (live fire) field exercises. Attendees are required to attend the entire course, with the exception of short (less than 20 minute) breaks for food, water, and other necessities. The first phase of the Ranger School is an introduction and explanation of the mission along with a quick training on the procedures and tactics that are expected and utilized to complete the objectives. Once the training phase is over, the mission will start with setting up the camp one hour after midnight and guarding the camp/going on patrols during the 9 hours night. The course will end with 2 hours of intensive combat shortly paused for briefings between missions.
