The 6th edition of the Canadian Armed Forces Sports Day will be held on Friday, October 19. At the Royal Military College Saint-Jean and the Montreal and Saint-Jean Garrisons, many free activities will be provided for civilian and military members of the Defence Team.

“The various Personnel Support Programs (PSP) departments are already at work,” explained Michelle Couture-Montpetit, PSP Resources Coordinator. “We looked at last year’s attendance statistics and came up with the activities that generated the most excitement and a few others.”
Ms. Couture-Montpetit extended a special invitation to those who are considering incorporating physical activity into their lifestyle, but who have not yet taken action. “For example, at the Saint-Jean Garrison, we offer shorter classes, perfect for an initiation to spinning or yoga. This day will offer the opportunity to test, visit our facilities and learn about our services. Who knows, maybe you will have an Ah-Ha moment!”

Whether you like to perform or just play sports for fun, there will be something for you. “We would like this day to allow people to engage in physical activity and have fun.” And healthy living habits mean a healthy diet. “Health Promotion will provide healthy snacks during the morning. Another good reason to enjoy the day!”

6th Edition of the Canadian Armed Forces Sports Day

Chief Warrant Officer Gaudreau and I believe it is essential for military personnel to have a high level of physical and mental fitness in order to successfully meet the challenges of expeditionary and domestic operations. Without physical fitness, which is a key contributing factor to overall wellness, our motto – Strong, Proud, Ready – is meaningless. Beyond the professional realm, fitness has important and lasting impacts on our quality of life. Our health, both physical and mental, is dependent on kinetic activity. For these reasons, we place a substantial level of importance on sports.

The Personnel Support Programs (PSP) offers a wide array of activities which cater equally to novice and expert athletes, as well as enthusiasts of individual and team sports. Boot Camp, Tabata, and team sports are among the many activities available to our personnel. Indeed, we are privileged to enjoy these services, courtesy of the dedicated, knowledgeable, and seasoned PSP staff.

Chief Warrant Officer Gaudreau joins me in encouraging all members of the 2nd Canadian Division Defence Team to participate in the numerous activities available during the Canadian Armed Forces Sports Day on October 19th. It will be an ideal opportunity to discover or rediscover the sports activities available to us through our PSP staff.

Brigadier-General Jennie Carignan, Commander of the 2nd Canadian Division and Joint Task Force (East)
