The PCYC (Police Citizens Youth Clubs) Cadet Games are a test of skill and camaraderie for Cadets from all sectors, with service people as their judges and mentors. To be able to compete, Cadets need to be between the age of 13-17 years old and each team has a Team Manager of 18 years+.
The aim of the day is to connect Cadets with the Emergency Services. Activities included first aid, stretcher training, parades, team building etc. On the 8th of July 2017, 6 Cadet Teams came together to represent the following organisations; Rural Fire, Emergency Services Cadet, St Johns, Surf, Airforce, Navy and Military.
The performance of the Cadets was impressive and inspiring. Their capability and ingenuity was clearly obvious. RRT was privileged to be able to support the Brisbane event with refreshments and catering. There was also an event held in Townsville, which was unfortunately beyond our territory.
We received some kind appreciation from Sally Baisden (Emergency Services Cadets Program Manager); “I don’t even know where to begin to express the amount of gratitude that we feel for your team’s work. It means so much to have our event supported by your wonderful organisation. As a volunteer based organisation, we can certainly appreciate the generosity of your team giving their time when they could be with family, friends, at work or play.”
These PCYC Cadet Games are truly an excellent initiative, with their chaos, their unique craziness and above all their reflection of what the Cadets (our youth, our future) are capable of, is a great inspiration to us all.
