The Cadet Challenge is the physical fitness test facilitated by the United States Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps for high school students. This is a challenge that helps show cadets where they are physically. The Cadet Challenge consists of five events: the shuttle run, flexed-arm hang/pull-ups, curl-ups, V-sit Reach, and the one-mile run/walk. Completing the Cadet Challenge with certain scores can qualify you for either the National Physical Fitness Award or the Presidential Physical Fitness Award.
The National Physical Fitness Award recognizes students who demonstrate a basic, yet challenging level of physical fitness. Students who score above the 50th percentile of all five events are eligible for this award.
The Presidential Physical Fitness Award recognizes students who achieve an outstanding level of physical fitness. Students who score at or above the 85th percentile on all events are eligible for this award.
The National and Presidential award qualifying scores are in the following PDF:
We encourage our cadets to do their absolute best on the Cadet Challenge!
