The Director of Athletics, Darren Cates, oversees Physical Education, Recreation, Intramurals and the varsity program and has 26 full-time employees. “At a civilian university you must justify why physical activity is important. Here you don’t have to do that,” says Darren. “At RMC it is accepted that physical activity and sports are valuable and needed. We’re held in the same regard as academics and second language training.” Although the RMC does not give out Athletic Financial Awards (AFAs), students have a subsidized education through the Canadian Forces. Unlike many civilian universities, the RMC only employs full-time coaches who can spend all of their time focusing on their teams and their recruiting efforts.
RMC “Student - Athlete Suspects” should meet at least seven of the 10 criteria: 1. Plays RMC sport at an “elite” level during his / her high school years; 2. History of being a responsible person; 3.

This photo of Royal Military College of Canada cadets doing a gymnastics routine, taken in 1901 in Kingston is part of the Canada Patent and Copyright Office collection. The cadets are performing human pyramids, where the students work on balance, strength, cooperation, and teamwork. In this stunt, participants form pyramids of layers of persons, each standing on two others one level lower, one half a position to the right and the other to the left. In 1931-2, Brigadier WHP Elkins, RMC Commandant, introduced an academic eligibility rule for participation on the hockey and football teams which barred cadets with academic averages below 40%. He subsequently reported an improvement in the quality of the classwork and another successful year in intercollegiate competition.
Once RMC re-opened after World War II, varsity athletes representing RMC were proud to call themselves the Redmen in competition. It represented one of the most prevalent facets of RMC tradition, the wearing of the scarlet uniform on formal parades. Gentlemen cadets first took on the name because it was an all-male institution at the time and due to the red uniform, hence red-men, informally "Reddies". In 1996, women had been studying as RMC cadets for sixteen years so college authorities thought it was necessary to change the varsity title to something that was representative of the whole cadet wing. Furthermore, the college was receiving some criticism that Redmen was a derogatory name for Canada’s Aboriginal People. With the closure of Royal Roads Military College (RRMC) and College militaire royal de St-Jean (CMR) in 1995, RMC saw two more student bodies join the college. Because of a large induction of francophone students from CMR, RMC was transformed into a bilingual universi...
The West Point series originated when the commandant of RMC, Sir Archibald McDonnell and the superintendent of the United States Military Academy (West Point), Brigadier General Douglas MacArthur, suggested a game of hockey between the two schools in 1921. After two years of exchanging ideas the first game was played on February 23, 1923 at West Point.The Redmen won that first game 3-0 and a New York paper stated "Army was beaten at hockey today by Royal Military College of Kingston, Ontario. The Canadian cadets excelled the Army men all the way, displaying the best all around form seen here in years. Hamilton and the Carr-Harris’s were the outstanding stars of the Canadian team. This game was one of the cleanest fought contests staged here this winter and was marked by a fine display of sportsmanship on both sides." In commemorate of the game, RMC donated the "Challenge Trophy."In 1924 the series moved to Kingston thus beginning the tradition of rotating venues. This was Army's fir...

This game is memorialized by the International Hockey Hall of Fame annual Historic Hockey Series. The Queen’s vs. RMC rivalry dates back to 1886 and is the longest in hockey history.

The RMC Redmen were one of the first collegiate hockey teams in Canada. Wikia links have them playing Ontario senior hockey as early as 1890-91. In Ontario provincial play, RMC won the provincial intermediate title in 1931, which qualified them to advance to the 1930-31 Eastern Canada Allan Cup Playoffs. The intermediate intercollegiate level was unique. The schools with senior teams (e.g. University of Toronto, Queen's University, University of Montreal, and McGill University) would often have both a senior team and an intermediate team. Schools with one side would sometimes play senior and sometimes play intermediate. Frequent opponents at intermediate level were McMaster University, University of Western Ontario, University of Laval, Loyola College, Ontario Agricultural College, and Osgoode Hall. RMCwon nine titles at the intermediate intercollegiate level. As university teams gravitated towards university leagues, RMC entered the Ottawa-St. Lawrence Conference (OSLC) from its in...
