Team Leader Class

Post by Mike »

The Team Leader Class is a 1-day non-firing course of instruction designed to teach students to be effective small-unit leaders. You will learn to effectively organize into fire teams and squads, and how to take full advantage of any special weapons you may have available. We will cover how to use team-based training to mold a group of willing volunteers into a cohesive fighting force. Finally, you will lead a team of fellow students in a series of battle drills to get the experience you need to apply what you’ve learned on your own.

Edit: I am extending the Team Leader class to a 2-day course, beginning Saturday morning and ending around noon on Sunday. I've also added a Night Vision familiarization portion that will be optional for students who choose to arrive Friday evening. Going forward, the Team Leader Class will be structured as follows:

Friday (optional):
Early students arrive in the afternoon/evening
Night Vision familiarization

Saturday:
Remainder of students arrive, class starts at 0900
Part 1: Know your team
Part 2: Train your team
Fire Team level fire and movement drills (day and night)
Defensive Fundamentals
Patrolling basics (day and night)

Sunday:
Lesson: “The Godly Warrior” (optional)
Part 3: Lead your team
TDG exercise
Squad level Fire and Maneuver
AAR

We're about a month out from the next TL class on Saturday July 10th! So far I have 7/8 slots still available. The last one went extremely well, and everyone walked away more confident and having learned from each other. If you want to register, send me an email at [email protected]

See you out there!

Yes, working on either extending the Team Leader Class an extra day or starting a 2-day "Extended Patrolling" class. Will see how this next TL class goes on July 10th before making that call.

I would be game if you did a extended team leader class. If like me you got to drive over 12 hours a longer class makes it even better.
