The Air Training Corps provides extensive opportunities to participate in sports. The Corps' main sports, with annual organised competitions, are swimming, athletics, cross-country, football, netball, rugby union and hockey. All abilities can get involved, with competition starting at inter-squadron level. Those who do well can progress to represent the Wing, Region or even Corps.
As well as these seven sports, the squadron offers other sports which are played on the squadron or against other local squadrons. In the past these have included table tennis, volley ball and five-a-side football. Newton Aycliffe squadron also has a weekly sports night, which can be attended to complete the Physical section of the Duke of Edinburgh Award, though all cadets are welcome to attend.
