squad leader questions

Recommended Posts

I don't believe so for rule requirements, but you'll have a lot asked of you in the field by your team and superiors. So just be prepared for the responsibility that comes with the position.

If it's your first event I suggest not being a SL. They are also usually assigned so you have to talk with your direct leadership on that. Other then that be ready cause your neck is the one they will chop first on any issues.

More importantly than being the "head on the chopping block" remember that a squad leader is foremost tasked with the welfare of their troops. I feel that there is an important distinction there. One of your guys getting dehydrated out there is a failure on your shoulders as squad leader to be sure, but it is different from just being blamed for something happening.

I've had a lot of fun as a squad leader at various games, including once at Broken Home. But you have to really think about whether it is a challenge you want to tackle and a responsibility you want to take on.

Typically if you have to ask, you're not ready. ;)

 

Easiest way to think about any command position would be much like middle management in corporate America. When I run a squad at events I am making sure I am following the intent of my command, at the same time making sure all my guys are shooting in the right direction, have enough water, have enough ammo and are staying "hydrated and not getting fatigued".

Overall, its a great learning experience if you do decide to be or become one.  It can show where you what you need to work on.  I think its a great learning experience for those looking forward to forming a team.  Good luck, if you do decide to be one.  Feel free to ask away if you still want to be one.
