The Athletic Department has a very unique and challenging mission of
contributing to the preparation of tomorrow's leaders. We do this by
providing realistic leadership experience in an environment that is
both mentally and physically challenging. Through athletic competition,
we are able to prepare tomorrow's warriors for challenges they will
meet as commissioned officers in the Air Force. This "forged in fire"
concept lays the fundamental foundation of courage, strength, and
discipline that they will take with them as they become the defenders
of our great nation.
Academy athletes have always been known as tremendous competitors and
have consistently displayed commitment and dedication to ensure that
they are ready to compete on game days. The life lessons learned on the
"field of friendly strife" will prepare them to be future leaders for
the Academy and the Air Force and our country. Go Falcons!
