Welcome back to 704 Air Force City Cadet Squadron!

If you know of anyone between the ages of 12-18 and who are interested in Cadets please feel free to invite them to visit the Squadron on a Monday night in September. If they already know they are interested in joining, then information on registration can be found under Registration / Required Documents on our webpage. Please pay special attention to the requirement to print on legal size paper.

Important Reminders

TAGGING is this weekend.  Every Cadet is expected to participate in at least one shift.  See details below. 

OPC Lottery Tickets: The sale of these tickets benefit our Squadron so we are able to attend trips and optional activities. Each Cadet is expected to sell one book.

As we did last year, our Sponsoring Committee would like $60.00 up front in September from each cadet for the book of tickets. When the tickets are sold, return only the stubs and keep the money.

New recruits and Cadets requiring uniform exchanges are to wear black pants and a white shirt until sized and uniform parts are in stock.

If you are unable to attend training on a Monday night or an event that you have signed up for, then you need to call the squadron at 613-921-7047 or report your absence on the squadron website. CLICK HERE FOR LINK. Commenting on Facebook or telling a friend are NOT acceptable means of reporting your absence. This is the Cadets responsibility not their parents.

Please add the following events to your calendar for the 2019-2020 Training Year:

Standard Monday night training will not be posted here unless there is something special happening such as Sports night that may occur at a different location. Team practices will be posted here a few weeks in advance.
