Members of Ceremonial and Footdrill Team teach scout members skills in ceremonial and footdrill through training courses in different levels; and scout members will have a chance to show in the Annual Footdrill Competition all the skills and achievements they obtained from the trainings. Moreover, members of Ceremonial and Footdrill Team are taking a leading role in the ceremonies for scout members and leaders at the Hong Kong Scout Rally held every year, showing to the public that scouts are dignified in appearance as well as energetic.
