Hey guys,

Just a question for anyone whos recently been to Depot or is there now ...

In terms of a pillow should we bring one of our own, or is that even allowed? I noticed it’s not on the list of suggested items to bring...
No waifus.
I wonder how one cadet would presents himself or herself to 31 strangers with a waifu pillow...

Gyms with indoor hocket stuff, there is a pool table at the cadet bar, IIRC, you can get into the bar any time, but it only serves alcohol at certain points. They had a pool table, fusball, PS3/Xbox I think

The Stand Easy Mess has a pool table, foosball and gaming consoles (PlayStation and XBox, although I'm not sure what generation).

For outdoor sports there is a soccer field and track, a baseball diamond, beach volleyball courts, an outdoor rink, outdoor fitness equipment/obstacle courses and half-court basketball.

The Fitness Centre has all the equipment you'll need for badminton, basketball, volleyball and the like.

The pool is open after hours, but you'll need a swim partner.

During the summer, cadets can sign out bikes. The city has a network of running/cycling paths right next to the Academy. Those will take you all over Regina.

Oh wow...I would edit the post and use the search function. There’s countless pages with a lot of info regarding process. Or feel the wrath of Pete :P

As for women keeping up, you make it sound like they’re at a disadvantage? Women are tough too and that stigma should be dropped.

When you did your invariable google search that brought you here did you perchance skip past what was very likely among the very first links that would have come up?

http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/en/how-to-apply

As for how long each step takes, there is no set answer, each person's will be different.

There are females graduating from training in pretty much every troop, so by all accounts they seem to be holding up just fine.
When people get too chummy with me, I like to call them by the wrong name to let them know I don’t really care about them.
