This week:

Oct—Nov—Dec 2017 East Central Alabama YM Quarterly Events Schedule

***************************************************************************************************

All Drill and Event dates are subject to change.  A regular drill will consist of Physical Training, Drill Practice and Classes.  A mandatory class means it is required so if you miss that class/test make up work is necessary.  PT gear (black shorts, red t-shirt {white t-shirts for recruits} and tennis shoes are the regular uniform unless otherwise stated).  PARENTS:  Please make a copy of this schedule and post it where your YM can see it so they can keep track of their YM responsibilities.  Parents are always welcome to attend any event/drill to observe how we operate.  If a YM is unable to attend an event/drill you must contact Commander Long at 256-310-6481 before the event/drill.
