Training is held on Thursdays. *If any member chooses the alternate HAMR/shuttle run, please note that this will only be held on the 1st & 3rd Friday of each month. If one of these Fridays falls on a holiday or Family Day, then there will be a make-up day. *The 1.5 mile run will NOT be conducted on days that we perform the HAMR.
All other alternate components can be done alongside the regular components with regular testing days. All units sending members for the HAMR run must provide 2 PTLs to assist with the run.
