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.
