Sports and the RCN

 


 

Sports have been in integral part of the RCN since its inception in 1910. Whether it is Soccer, Football, Baseball, Shooting Competitions, and more - they were all part of inter-base / inter-ship rivalry as they strived for the coveted Cock-of-the-Walk.

 

Sailors came from all sorts of backgrounds and many had experience in junior and major league sports - skills they brought with them to the Navy.

 

This page is to record some of those sporting events and the sailors that took part in them.
