Welcome to 172!


A Message from the CO

Hey 172,

I’d like to provide a couple of updates on the status of this year’s training year. We have been directed by RCSU that we are not able to do any training in-person or virtual until after Oct 1st. We will be getting a much clearer idea of what this year will look like at the CO’s conference which runs from September 18-19, 2021.

We will be running a few virtual events, the first one is Recruitment Night taking place on Monday September 20th, 2021. Then we are having a parents and cadets information night on Tuesday September 21th, 2021. At this point we expect to have a better idea of what the rest of the training year will look like. Timings and details on how to join these meetings will follow closer to the event.

I know the delay to the start of the training year is frustrating for everyone, we all want to get back onto the parade square as soon as we can. I will continue to provide weekly updates, and I am looking forward to speaking with everyone on the 21st. If you have any questions please reach out to myself or someone else on the staff.

Captain Jos Diening
CO 172

Recruit Information Night

September 20th at 7pm will be a virtual recruit information night! This will be open to any one age 12-18 that is interested in joining or learning more about the program. Please invite your friends!

For any one who is interested in the information session and hasn’t reached out/ spoken to a staff member please fill the form out here. We will email everyone that we have spoken with about joining or any one that fills out the registration form the meeting details.


We are looking forward to starting training in September and we hope that you all had a great summer! We will be updating the Google calendar on the website soon and posting updates to the Facebook page. Our first night back we’ll be hosting an admin night/information session to let you know how this year will look.

Thank you from 172 officers and staff!
