Five local residents from Surrey’s 2812 Seaforth Highlanders Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps earned a bronze team medal after in six days of fierce competition in Valcartier, Que. at the 2012 National Cadet Marksmanship Championship and earned themselves a Bronze Team medal.

The cadets had an impressive performance competing among 125 of the most elite athletes from across the country – having already beaten 1,122 other teams from across Canada for the opportunity to compete at their level.

Marksmanship, one of the most popular cadet training activities, is an integral part of the Canadian cadet program, teaching self-discipline, building confidence and allowing cadets the opportunity to compete equally in a recreational sport that is gender neutral.

The program is patterned on Olympic-style competitive shooting and boasts several Canadian Olympians who got their start through the cadet program, including Pat Vamplew and Mike Ashcroft.
