Ethos Sport has attended the Army Winter Sports Association Championships for a few years now, in order to support Team Army sponsorship activity.

Gen Sir Peter Wall CGS, presents Army Alpine Men’s Slalom Championship trophy to Cpl White RLC

The event takes place in Serre Chevalier in the French Alps, and is amongst the most well attended and important networking events around sport in the Army’s calendar, as well as being a great deal of fun! This year, for the first time, we also had a small team at the Royal Navy’s equivalent championships at Tignes, also in the French Alps.

Ethos Sport has only recently extended its operations into Navy sports, and so this was an excellent opportunity to support sponsors arranged through Ethos Sport, as well as build relationships with Navy personnel and gain greater insights of how the event is run, and what opportunities might be available next winter. There has already been great moments, some of which we (and others) have captured below.
