Each week, Seton Hall University ROTC holds daily PT sessions, Monday through Friday, at Seton Hall University. Underclassmen Cadets are required to attend PT sessions Monday through Wednesday. Upperclassmen Cadets are required to attend PT every day. Each session consists of one hour of physical training, planned and executed by cadets with cadre supervision.
Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT)
The program holds two Army Physical Fitness Tests per semester for
record. The APFT consists of three events: push-ups, sit-ups, and a 2 mile run.
During the push-up and sit-up events, Cadets are given 2 minutes, per event, to
complete as many repetitions as possible. A minimum score of 180 (60 points per
event) is considered passing out of a maximum score of 300 (100 points per
event). Standards for each event vary by age and gender.
In addition to standard PT, the program also offers other additional PT opportunities. Cadets may try out for the Ranger Challenge team, which holds its own PT sessions. The Ranger Challenge team's PT is considered more challenging as it focuses on preparing the team for the highly competitive Ranger Challenge event that occurs in the Fall Semester where ROTC schools from across the region competes to be honored as the top Ranger Challenge team.
