Try-outs for precision marching drill team approaching

| July 29, 2013

COSHOCTON – On Sept. 3 and 5 at 5 p.m., Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church Youth Ministries will have tryouts for the newly-formed Precision Marching Drill Team, The Coshocton Pacesetters.  The tryout welcomes boys and girls between the ages of 13 and 18 years old.

The reverend Cliff N. Biggers, senior pastor of Shiloh, is committed to “making an investment in our future” through providing such programs that both challenges and rewards young people through community faith-based programs. Reverend Biggers has also stated, “if we (community) don’t give our children constructive things to do, they (children) will find destructive things we don’t want them to do. Children are 40 percent of our population, but 100 percent of our future,” Reverend Biggers has often said.

The drill team will offer 25 exclusive positions with a four-piece drum corps. Crisp and sharp military style uniforms for those who are selected will be provided. The drill team’s organizers will provide drill masters in marching, precision rifle drills and exciting drill team formations. The drill team will compete in local, state and national competitions.  An application must be obtained by calling 622-3632 Monday through Friday between the hours of 9 a.m. and noon. The first training session will be Saturday, Sept. 14 at 10 a.m. You must try out if you are to be considered for a position.
