Army Cadets has 7 national sports competitions with over 2,000 cadets, many from Somerset, competing at a national level each year

As an Army Cadet you will have the option to take part in a variety of sports and competitions such as athletics, cross country, swimming, football, rugby, hockey, orienteering and tug-of-war. Almost all sports involve both boys and girls. But before you reach the national finals, there are regional heats to compete in.

With yet more sport at company and platoon levels, it’s clear that many Somerset cadets are regularly building their confidence and learning teamwork skills in a spirit of healthy competition through Army Cadets sport. Senior cadets can apply for the Community Sports Leadership Course, which is currently run twice a year.
