Sport & Adventurous Training

The Regiment has a full program of sports and adventurous training that soldiers strive to take part in.

The Regimental football team tends to finish near the top of the Army league each season. The rugby team has won the inter Gunner championship on a number of occasions. The Regiment also takes part in annual Army wide skiing championships during the winter. 4th Regiment also looks forward to its inter-Battery boxing night in the early months of each year.

Batteries also conduct their own adventurous training abroad giving soldiers the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of activities such as safari in Kenya; mountain biking all over the UK and abroad and climbing in the Italian Dolomites.

Sport and adventurous training serves a pivotal role in developing a soldier’s confidence and team spirit. It is also a fun way of developing physical stamina and courage. It is therefore something the Regiment takes very seriously.

Profession & Career Development

Throughout a soldier’s career, he/she is required to constantly train for and develop him/herself for operations. Therefore, 4th Regiment believes that soldier development is at the core of its business.

The Regiment possesses its own award winning Centre for Personal Development (RA CPD) whose goal is to teach non-military skills in order to enhance a soldier’s career. This can range from basic literacy and numeracy, BTEC LVL 3’ through to full A-Levels.

Through the RA CPD, soldiers also have the opportunity to transfer their military skills into civilian qualifications. Soldiers of 4th Regiment have the chance to gain apprenticeships and NVQs in Transport, Distribution, Stores and Warehousing, and Personnel Management to name a few.
