In order to request a performance please begin the scheduling process through our headquarters command, The U.S. Army Military District of Washington (MDW).

  Support requirements for a standard drill:

  • Drill performance area must be at least 60 feet by 80 feet with a ceiling height of 25 feet.
  • A public announcing (PA) system for the USADT announcer.
  • A securable dressing room at the Drill/Performance site.
  • An alternate rehearsal area, if the actual performance area is not available one-hour prior to mission execution time.
  • Preferably an indoor performance area with sufficient lighting.

  Support requirements for a solo:

  • Drill performance area must be at least 20 feet by 15 feet with a ceiling height of 25 feet.
  • A public announcing (PA) system for the USADT announcer.
  • A securable dressing room at the Drill/Performance site.
  • An alternate rehearsal area, if the actual performance area is not available one-hour prior to mission execution time.
  • Preferably an indoor performance area with sufficient lighting.

  CONSTRAINTS: The USADT will not perform under the following adverse weather conditions:

  • Rain- exposure to rain causes the weapons to become unmanageable.
  • Standing water/ muddy ground- due to the "butting" of weapons any moisture on the ground will be transferred to the weapons making them unmanageable.
  • Lightning Storms.
  • Winds in excess of 15 miles per hour.
  • Air Temperature below 55 degrees Fahrenheit because cold temperatures decreases the drillers' dexterity.

Safety Considerations

  Every effort will be made to drill/perform; however, some adverse conditions could compromise the safety of the members of the USADT. Ultimately, it is the responsibility and duty of the Drill Team Commander, or the Platoon Sergeant in the Drill Team Commander's absence, to cancel a drill due to inclement weather or safety considerations.
