Help us launch the Oath Keepers Spartan Training Group program
We are proud to announce our upcoming Spartan Training Group program! The Oath Keepers Spartan Training Group program will be open to all patriotic Americans who are loyal to the Constitution, do not discriminate, and are not felons.
Our goal is to form training groups in as many states as possible. To join your local training group, membership in Oath Keepers will not be required, but will be encouraged. In the era of the Founding Fathers, they formed “training bands” with the express goal of training the public up to the high standards of the militia. The Spartan program is the modern equivalent.
Our qualified and experienced military, law enforcement and first responder veterans will train the American people up to a similar high standard. Such individuals will form a pool of trained, organized volunteers who will be able to serve as the local militia under the command of a patriotic governor loyal to the Constitution, or if called upon by President Trump to serve the nation.
How Can You Help?
Through October 16th, we will be running a fundraising drive to raise money for the Spartan Training Group program. Our goal is to raise $100,000 during the course of the fundraiser. You can help this effort by purchasing tickets to our Spartan Training Group raffle. Tickets cost $25 a piece, and each ticket purchased counts as a separate chance to win, so each ticket you purchase will increase your chances to win a Diamondback AR10 .308 Winchester (DB10CMLB) and a Lifetime membership to Oath Keepers. If the winner is already a Lifetime member of Oath Keepers, they will be given the opportunity to gift the membership to a person of their choosing.
What Will Spartans Be Asked To Do?
Those who volunteer for the Spartan Training Group program will be trained to a high standard such that they may be called upon to protect our borders, or provide security for schools during active shooter situations, or serve on a Sheriff’s posse under a constitutional Sheriff. Additionally, they may be tasked with providing regular security at local schools, similar to the Sentinel Program enacted by Polk County Florida Sheriff Grady Judd.
Program members will also receive training to handle natural disasters and emergency relief, with the goal of being able to provide aid during disasters as we have in the past during Hurricane Katrina and the recent flooding in Texas.
Short of being called upon by the President, governor, local Sheriff, or to provide disaster relief, members will be trained to serve as volunteer security for local events, churches and effective neighborhood watches for their communities.
Who Will Provide The Training?
Along with the Spartan Training Group program, we will be forming Sentinel Teams. These teams will be comprised of highly qualified, vetted Oath Keepers in good standing and will be trained to provide in-house training in every state to our Spartan Training Groups.
Our Sentinels will provide our first response to disasters and emergency situations, as well as shouldering the responsibility of providing training to their local Spartan Training Group.
Both the Spartan Training Group program, and our Sentinel Teams will be 100% legal, professional training operations that we are putting into effect nationwide. Due to this, there will be a vetting process for positions in either group. Additionally, we can not accommodate or provide training to anyone with a felony record.
Think You Have What It Takes?
Our Spartan Training Groups are open to members and non-members alike, so feel free to apply today. Additionally, if you believe that you already have the training and experience to be a member of one of our Sentinel Teams, we encourage you to apply now!
