CORNWALL Ontario – Over this past weekend, the 10 member Exertion Team from the 325 Cornwall Kiwanis Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron placed Top in Basketball, Top in Floor Hockey, Top in Fitness and Top Overall. Air Cadets is a youth organization for youth ages 12-18.
The Exertion Competition is a full day competition unique to the Eastern Ontario Area (EOA) of the Air Cadet Program. No other air cadets in Canada participate in this competition. Of the 19 air cadet squadrons in EOA, our very own Cornwall Squadron placed Top Overall.
This yearly competition is a combination of sports (Basketball, Floor Hockey, Handball and Volleyball) as well as Fitness Testing (following the Cadet Canada Fitness guidelines), Leadership Taskings, General Cadet Trivia, Air Crew Survival challenges and lastly Sportsmanship. All 10 members compete in all areas of the competition. This certainly is a competition in which skill in all areas is a key for success.
