Few Questions about the army sports

Discussion in 'Sports, Adventure Training and Events' started by WannaBeAFRKid, Aug 20, 2013.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I wanna do Athletics in the army - 100m Sprint and LJump (preferably with some training rep my reg as i am quite quite and lanky helps me with a decent jump) also id like to maybe do judo for fun and obviously some adventure training here and there.

    My questions are:

    Do you have to serve a min amount of time before you can apply to do stuff like athletics?

    How does the training and stuff work around trade job?

    How do you go about sorting this out? Just wanna know before hand so once ive done phase2 i can get the ball rolling.

    Is there a max amount of sports you can do at one time? Like id have to drop athletics if i wanted to do judo.
  2. Forget sports during phase 1, get through it best you can
    Likewise for phase 2, get your trade training done to the best of your ability
    Once posted, read notice boards for details of clubs on camp etc

    If you have a natural sporting ability it is usually spotted early and you are advised what to do.
