The CF National Sports program plays a prominent role in promoting fitness and good health within the military community. Sports inspire CF members to improve their physical fitness and build their leadership and self-discipline skills. They also promote teamwork, loyalty and commitment.
At every base and wing, there are intersection, intramural or local sporting events for all levels of athletes. Regional level winners go on to compete at one of the 14 CF National Sports Championships held throughout the year.
