Feeling competitive? As an air cadet you can take part in seven main sports at different levels – athletics, cross country, football, rugby, hockey, netball and swimming. Whatever you do it’ll help improve your physical fitness levels and your team skills. If you’re good enough at your favourite sport we’ll notice, and can help you take it to the next level.
There are frequent tournaments between squadrons, where the best players are selected to represent the wing. The same then happens for the region, with wings competing against each other and the best players making up the regional team. If you make it through each of those selections then you’re good. Really good. You’ll be at the top of your game and will have a shot at representing the entire cadet corps, nationally and even internationally.
(A Wing is a selection of Air Cadet Squadrons (usually in county groups), a region is several wings grouped “regionally”. Our Squadron is in the Norfolk and Suffolk Wing, in the Central and East Region.)
