Playing hockey for the Royal Military College of Canada is one of the best kept secrets to Canadian high school graduates who have the ability and desire to play college/university hockey. To receive a world class education, be paid a salary to attend, have all tuition and book expenses covered, have free lodging and meals provided on campus, to earn a pension from day one and to have the opportunity to play in the CIS with many elite players is a “package” which few, if any colleges or universities, can match. We believe playing hockey for the RMC Paladins is the best all around opportunity for university hockey players.

Parents are often forgotten in the university/ college process but not at RMC. The college and our team understand the important role parent's play in supporting their student cadet through their journey at the college.
From a parent's standpoint visiting the campus should give great comfort about the support and facilities your son will have while attending. As for a visit you will really enjoy the city of Kingston with its abundance of culinary, pubs/bars options and it's easy to navigate charming city centre.
There is lots to see and do outside of visiting your son such as; seeing the history, islands of Lake Ontario, the shoreline, the famous Kingston Penitentiary, magnificent and historic Fort Henry which sits above the RMC campus with stunning views of the campus and Kingston. We are extremely confident that visiting Kingston and RMC will become an exciting event for you and your entire family.
Hopefully you can coordinate your visits with some ceremonies for your son. We strongly suggest that you attend your son's welcome to RMC, the badging of first year cadets on the same weekend of the first year cadets obstacle course challenge! Also try to attend a graduation weekend. Unlike most colleges and universities this event is very prestigious and is an eventful two days of marches, fireworks, and other ceremonies on campus and nearby.
We are committed to outlining a calendar of the suggested ceremonies and team events for the parents.
