Battle Back Adventurous Training

Adventurous training is the use of challenging outdoor activities and controlled exposure to risk to improve courage, leadership, fitness and team spirit.

There are nine activities in the Joint Services Adventurous Training (JSAT) Scheme and injured/disabled personnel can, subject to being classified medically fit for the activity, participate in any of them. They are:

  • Sub-aqua diving
  • Offshore sailing
  • Mountaineering (includes all associated disciplines, eg rock climbing)
  • Skiing (includes ski touring)
  • Canoeing (includes kayaking)
  • Caving
  • Gliding
  • Freefall parachuting
  • Hang/paragliding

All are run on a non-competitive basis but are challenging and achieve the aims of adventurous training.

Battle Back has also participated in a number of other challenge pursuits including mountain biking and white water rafting.
