Ocean Springs JROTC cuts ribbon on new obstacle course

Ocean Springs School District’s JROTC program now has its first permanent obstacle course!

On Saturday, the ribbon was cut on the new course and cadets attempted the obstacles for the very first time.

This PT Course is unique to the Coast and soon it will host JROTC PT competitions, welcoming schools from all over the southern states.

Cadets and student athletes alike will use the course for training. Not only will it help in physical fitness, but also in developing teamwork skills and critical thinking. Ocean Springs JROTC Senior Lily Chewins said, “It’s a lot of fun. We get a lot more bonding experience working out here and working on the course. We did two fundraisers for it, so we raised a lot of money. And we get better as a team working all together.”

Cadets raised $20,000 through multiple fundraisers and community partnerships to install the course which is located behind Ocean Springs Middle School.
