The Athletic Component is one of the four Components of the Royal Military College of Canada. The Athletics Program is designed to provide opportunities for all officer-cadets to participate in physical activities and sports that are mentally demanding in order to develop their overall physical capabilities, self-confidence and leadership.
Contact sports develop courage and aggressiveness; other team sports develop self-sacrifice and esprit de corps; individual sports expand an individual's confidence, poise and self-reliance; all sports develop self-discipline and the ability to react quickly and accurately under pressure while retaining control and presence of mind. The Athletics Program is therefore extremely important in the training of officer-cadets for effective service as officers in the Canadian Forces (CF).
