Feeling competitive? As an air cadet you can take part in seven main sports at different levels (Click the links to find out more):
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.
Trials are held annually in the Dorset and Wiltshire wing allowing cadets to try out to be selected to represent the wing team in their respective sport. The Wing team will then play against other wings within the South West Region, and the best players will be selected to make 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 if selected from regional competitions.
Work hard, play hard
Mixing work and play is at the heart of the Air Cadets. Getting stuck into sport is fun, and you’ll build friendships and learn how to use your strengths to best effect in a team. And it doesn’t stop at the sports we’ve mentioned.
You don’t have to be the next Olympic star, just take the opportunities and enjoy yourself!
