What is Hell Day?
Hell Day places registrants into a team, and are provided with rubber training rifles, large training logs, combat life-saving gear, litters, and more, all while immersed in a realistic training environment similar to Navy SEAL BUD/S Hell Week, USAF A&S, Army Ranger/Special Forces Assessment & Selection, etc.
Students are exposed to strenuous environmental elements such as: cold water submersion, stress induced from instructor cadre, challenging team ruck marches & runs, etc. Weaknesses & strengths are exposed in each student throughout the event, providing real-time proof/analysis of whether the student possesses the necessary traits to become a Special Operator. Traits we analyze:
task-performing accuracy & precision under stress
communication under stress
confidence accomplishing tasks under the water
Students learn that only together, as one unit, will they finish the course. Whether communicating clearly to accomplish tasks or keeping warm after cold water submersion, the day/night is full of challenges that cannot be accomplished alone!
