PRT: Tonight's drill will be dedicated to the Physical Readiness Test (PRT). The PRT page is updated to include an easy to read PRT standards document at the top of the page. Please bring y0ur official USNSCC PT gear. It includes the PT shorts and PT shirt. The sweats are optional. This is a required item to bring to training and technically required when conducting unit PRT events. If you do not have the official PT gear, please wear similar civilian items. Don't forget to wear approbate running shoes. We might have light rain starting at the time of our drill. Please wear some outer clothing to stay warm and dry. Additionally, bring a towel to lay down on the grass for curl-ups. Hydrate well before arriving. We'll stay on top of the weather and if we have to, we will postpone for a week.
