Our Armed Forces do a great deal on our behalf. In order to protect our interests and our way of life, we frequently ask these brave men and women to risk their lives in extreme circumstances and when called upon they do so with great courage and professionalism.
Sport makes a vital contribution to the Army’s operational capability. It helps soldiers to work in teams, develop as individuals and aids recruiting and retention. It promotes self discipline, esprit-de-corps and raises standards of fitness and endurance. It brings out the best in people and stimulates the hunger to win on the field and on the battleground.
For those who come home with life changing injuries, sport can play a key role in helping to rebuild their lives by providing positive goals, improving physical mobility and confidence.
There are 45 Army sports associations, 11 army corps and a large number of groups that provide sporting opportunities for our wounded warriors of all 3 Services. Each sport has its own specific needs which are assessed regularly by the trustees. Grants are distributed from the Foundation fund to ensure that every sport is treated fairly, with special attention being given to disabled and adaptive sports up to Paralympic standard.
