Athletics are a way of life at
the Academy.

The United States Air Force Academy fields 29 different men's and women's intercollegiate sports — but that's not all. Every cadet plays on an intramural team, physical education is part of the curriculum, and physical fitness is tested each quarter. So get on your game.
