All soldiers who are keen to pursue a sporting interest can do so – whatever their ability. This includes the injured and disabled, who are able to participate in sport through an initiative called Battle Back. They train with and compete alongside the able-bodied, as all Battle Back activities are integrated into able-bodied programmes.
The best athletes in the Army can compete internally, at a combined Service level [against Royal Air Force, Royal Navy] and with civilian teams.
‘Elite’ athletes are given encouragement and assistance to compete at the highest level possible, including representing Great Britain at olympic level.
Army sports range from high media interest, national level disciplines to minority interest activities, with proportionate requirements for funding. Team Army also offers corps-level involvement across one or more corps or regiments for sponsors who may have a particular association. Some Army sports already have long-term sponsorship deals, while others historically have existed on very little financial support. Team Army provides a sensitive balance that accommodates your commercial objectives while supporting all sports.
