FORT KNOX, KY– Basic Camp 6th Regiment Cadets work in groups to tackle the obstacles from the Team Development Course (TDC).
The purpose of TDC is to improve and build on team working skills, and confidence in your team.
“Its designed to bring different minds together to get a task accomplished,” Cadet Mardarius Gibson, Albany State University.
While at TDC, Cadets are broken into teams of 10 people and they have to complete five different obstacle stations. The stations vary in difficulty, time allotted, and task.
Each station is marked with yellow parts that the Cadets are not allowed to touch, or they get a time penalty that varies from 15 to 60 seconds.
“The exercises work best when you listen to your teammates and have good communication with them,” said Gibson.
As Cadets rotate through the stations, they also rotate leadership roles. During the course, Cadets are evaluated by Cadre members and then are later evaluated by their peers.
Cadet Summer Training will bring 8,200 Cadets through Basic and Advanced Camp this summer on Fort Knox. These camps are designed to help challenge, grow and improve various skills and leadership qualities within the Cadets.
