Dates are finalized and USMC JROTC schools will be attending from across the nation! Thank you to all of the people who have pushed hard to make the Marine Corps JROTC National Drill Championships move from a dream to a reality. After three years of the event being held in more modest surroundings, the 4th anniversary of the competition shifts the location to the Sunshine State and to the Mecca of military drill excellence! The Ocean Center Arena & Conference Center is geared up to give the competition the big stage it so richly deserves! Highlights this year will include the beginning of an academic component to the event! Of course beautiful trophies sponsored by the Marine Corps League National Foundation and a fired up competition field will pair well with the sand and surf across the street from "The World's Most Famous Beach".

The Marine Corps League National Foundation has stepped up to the plate to support the competition as a sponsor. Combined with the hard work and financial support of the Marine Corps JROTC Headquarters in Quantico, Virginia, the ten chosen schools will be attending and competing without any required costs or payments to SNI! These 40-cadet maximum units will be battling within Inspection, Armed & Unarmed Basic Drill, Armed & Unarmed Exhibition Drill and Color Guard and new in 2020, a 100 question academic component to determine the best overall Marine Corps JROTC program in the world.

The Ocean Center Arena & Conference Center is a massive indoor facility that will be the expansive home for the competition. Informally known as the "Mecca of Military Drill", The Ocean Center has hosted the venerable National High School Drill Team Championships now since the day they opened their doors over 30 years ago. Plentiful parking and wide, unobstructed floor spaces of carpet and concrete, along with high ceilings and team areas with vendors and exhibitors near the floor will give the event a great Devil Dog vibe! The venue stands ready to host the event. We are thrilled for the future of this event and we look forward to the best MCJROTC Nationals ever held! No admission charge is in effect to attend the Marine Corps JROTC Nationals and spectators are encouraged to attend and cheer on their units!
