ADSC Team Tasks

Discussion in 'The Training Wing' started by Fandangohxjg, Mar 1, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone please give me a heads up on the team tasks that are set on the second day of recruit selection?

    Also what happens in the PT session on the first night?

    Any help is much appreciated!
     
  2. In the team tasks you'll be put in teams and you are given some wooden planks, so you need to get over an area without touching the ground, which can be a little bit tricky in some of the areas.

    And if you mean the PT session on the first day as in the heaves, static lift etc. and some other machines which are mainly there to test your back strength, they aren't very difficult, but just try your best.

  3. Thanks for the fast reply... I was referring to the pt evening session on day one. What does this involve?
     
  4. We didn't do the PT Session in the 1st evening, not sure if they do it now.. but i'm sure its just shuttle runs, relays etc
     
  5. Did you pass your selection?

    What was your run time..heaves etc

    Was it at lichfield?
     
  6. I'm not sure this answers your specific question, but thought I'd drop this in anyhoo - maybe it'll help

    It also gives financial information dated financial year 03/04 so I'm guessing it's a few years out of date, no doubt it's still mostly relevant though - I would have thought anyway
     
  7. Did mine on tuesday at Glencorse, it doesn't really matter if you complete the task, just make sure u keep talking and getting involved.

    My results were nothing special but i still passed, 7 heaves and 10.59 in the run.

    Remember, everything is best effort and you should have a laugh whilst you're there. Good luck.
     
  8. Well in January when I went to Glencorse we didn't do a pt session mate, just the heaves etc. And I passed, would have done 13 heaves but 2 didn't count because I didn't extend my arms fully, so I done 11 heaves. My run time was 9.30 was hoping for a better time though because I'm going for Para.

  9. Yes same here DH, we didn't do the relays or anything, just straight to the tests! You going to Harrogate? I'm there in september.
     
  10. Yes I'm going to Harrogate in September mate. Is your starting date the 9th then?

  11. you lot are lucky, i went in january and did a PT session on the first day, played basketball where you cant stop running if you get caught, to the side 10 press ups and back to running/playing. Then we played crab footbal and if your seen not moving, to the side 10 press ups, might not sound hard but trust me it was agony and fcked me up for the run the next day. Most ended up taking the press ups to get a rest from running. We also did heaves and stuff earlier on in the day.
     
  12. Luis, did you go to lichfield?

    DH
     
  13. nope pirbright
     
  14. It will be, just waiting untill i do my GCSE's before i can do the atestation and they give me the date then.
     
  15. Well I havn't done my GCSE's yet mate but the AFCO rang a few days after I went to the ADSC and told me the starting date.

    And also it might only be Glencorse who don't do the pt session then.
