SMA Prep Jr. Raiders

Raiders is an extreme adventurer sport made up of a small team of cadets working toward the same goal. SMA Prep was the first school to introduce raiders at the middle school level and now competitions involving area middle schools include running, obstacles, backpacks, and more. Physical conditioning and teamwork are the core elements required for team success. Jr. Raiders go on field trips to Treeumph, learn to rappel, camp, and build rope bridges!
