The Military Excellence Competition Team (MECT) is dedicated to the development and exhibition of fundamental military skills and leadership, emphasizing physical fitness and combat readiness. MECT takes motivated cadets and develops their physical capabilities through rigorous training and tactical skills in a combination of academic and practical exercises. The core training value for MECT members is physical fitness, teamwork, and combat-style leadership. A team leader will learn how to effectively lead a team to complete a number of objectives while MECT members will develop and lead the training programs to ensure maximum training value. MECT also offers resources, workout groups, and New England wide networks to prepare interested cadets both physically and mentally for Phase I and Phase II special operations selection (SOFPrep).
