    On my application under sports it has JROTC as an option. I am in JROTC. Does that mean I can put it down as a sport?

    Technically...

    Are you on the Raider Team. Even then, it's suspect.

    I tell my cadets: "ONLY if you are on one of the varsity teams: air rifle, orienteering, drill" otherwise, it's an academic class, not a sport.

    I talked to cc yesterday and they said if I was just in JROTC then I can put it down as a sport.
