The team has the opportunity to travel around the country and perform precision routines to members of the public and ADF.
The team is composed completely of Midshipmen and Officer Cadets (cadets). Positions of leadership within the team includes a Cadet in Charge, a Second in Command, Operations Officer, Public Relations Member, Equipment Manager and Social Member. There is also a member of staff in the position of Supervising Officer, who assists with the administration and coordination of the team. The team is a completely voluntary organisation and as such all training is conducted in cadets' own time.
