We will march in any weather - Mental toughness
No going back in for clothes, bring it all out

Back Story
An elite squad of soldiers was given the assignment to capture a Warlord deep in the jungle. The warlord bribes the soldiers and they live the rest of their lives in rich luxury. They never leave the jungle again.
Name your Squad
1. It must be a name based on your back story. My example could be: Assassin to Slackin'.

2. No more than 3-4 words.
No Longer than a paragraph
Attendance
1. Are you sitting in your "Totem-canoe?"

2. Squad leaders: Is attendance complete and place on the back shelf?

3. Are you ready to listen once practice starts?
Squads?
Who are the squad leaders?
Introduce yourself
Name your squad
Write your squad name and your names on the totem
Why squads?
Teamwork
Teach each other
Help each other stay accountable for being on task and giving our best effort
Have more fun
Who's in my Squad?
What's the first thing should we should do??
How to Play
1.Get into a circle
2. Come up with an adjective to put by your name (Crazy Chris)
3. Share your names with others
4. Try to memorize each person's name, it will help a lot as the marching season goes on!
