Sport and adventurous training

Sport and adventurous training is actively encouraged in the Army as it develops leadership skills, promotes team building and fosters esprit de corps.


A wide variety of sports are played in the Army and members of the AGC participate at all levels. From Angling to Triathlon there is a sport for all abilities.

A number of our sports teams have toured other countries in order to play teams as far apart as the West Indies to Australia.
