The Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services (CFMWS) is responsible for delivering morale and welfare programs to the members of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF). The CAF Sports Program plays a prominent role in promoting fitness and good health within the military community. Sports inspire CAF members to improve their physical fitness and build their leadership and self-discipline skills. Sports also promote teamwork, esprit de corps, loyalty, and commitment.
The CAF Sports Program is divided into 2 main sub-groups, the intramural and the extramural programs. At the local level, every base, unit and wing conduct intramural (inter-section or inter-unit) or local sporting events for all levels of athletes. Extramural competition includes inter-base, CAF Regional, CAF National and International competition.
