Cadet Brad Hazelton of Aldergrove is presented with the plaque recognizing him as the top cadet in 7 Platoon

Cadet Brad Hazelton of Aldergrove is presented with the plaque recognizing him as the top cadet in 7 Platoon during three weeks of training at Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre, by Reviewing Officer Major Russ Lacey.

Cadet Hazelton is a member of 1922 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps, Aldergrove, B.C.

Cadet Hazelton attended the three-week Basic Sports & Fitness Course which prepares the cadets to fulfill the duties of a sports and fitness assistant at his or her home corps.

Cadets study the theory and the benefits of sports, learn muscle structure, injury prevention and safety, and nutritional planning. They also learn to lead warm-up and cool-down sessions and assist in planning and running team sports.

After the final parade, the cadets made their way to their homes in western Canada.

During the summer, 1150 army, sea and air cadets from western Canada will have spent up to six weeks in the Okanagan Valley centre, expanding the training they receive at their home corps, developing new skills and forming friendships.
