Currently, dance/drill team receives both as P.E. credit along with a Fine Arts credit because of its diversity.
To assume that dance/drill team is not a competitive sport is to say
that any activity that is judged objectively instead of subjectively is not
considered a sport.
Other athletic activities such as, diving, wrestling and
gymnastics, are all judged and scored by an objective opinion instead of a
subjective score. Dance/drill teams compete in the same way by objective
scores from professional judges. The competitive events offered in
dance/drill team are similar to a diving, wresting or gymnastics meet in where
there is an entry fee paid to compete and the participants may qualify to go on to a regional or national event.
