Sports

The RLC places a huge importance on sport. With 27 sports supported, we have one for you.

“I place a huge premium on sport in the Army. It helps our Army win in battle and plays a vital role in welfare, morale, operational effectiveness and recovery.

Sport produces soldiers who build and lead teams by habit and reflex. It generates and maintains cohesion. It nurtures pride and that essential corollary – humility. It encourages leaders to think clearly, confidently and positively when under pressure.

And fundamentally it feeds a winning culture and ethos that
inspire hunger for success on the battlefield.”
CGS, Army Sports Awards 2014
