The British United Services Club is proud to be the sponsor of the annual drill competition for Los Angeles area high schools' Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC). For 66 years a trophy has been awarded to the winning drill team at an awards ceremony attended by Club members and diplomatic members from Commonwealth and Allied countries.
The competition is supported by the Los Angeles City Board of Education, the United States Armed Forces and officials of State, County and local governments.

In past years, three Presidents of the United States have congratulated the winning units and have commended the Club for its interest in youth.
