Member Sports

For our members, the Dominion Command Sports Committee offers three different member sports, and investigates the option of including more on an ongoing basis. Through involvement on the local level, members are able to compete either as singles, doubles or teams. Depending on their success, they may go on to compete at the national level, and, in some cases, they continue their involvement in the sport to even more success.

Member Sports promotes Legion comradeship and sportsmanship by bringing together members from every branch of the Legion. The sporting events help keep members active physically, involves many members in organizing and administering the events, and in many instances, directly involves the community at large.

It has since grown to become a popular pastime in countries around the world.The Dominion Darts Championships were introduced at the Legion in 1975. Today, the national games are a highly competitive event.
