Supporting physical development and promoting ethical conduct through sport.

Every Cadet Participates

Physical development, health and well-being are fundamental to developing future leaders at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. In other words, this is not your typical college athletic program. Here you will develop your athletic and physical abilities every year until you graduate, starting on the first day of Swab Summer. You participate in the classroom, during a daily fitness period, through physical fitness testing, and through competition.

Whether or not you played in high school, every cadet competes, through varsity, club or intramural sports. By the time you graduate, you will be prepared for the physical rigors of work as a commissioned officer.

Varsity Athletics

The Academy offers an intercollegiate program that is one of the broadest in NCAA, Division III, with 12 men’s, ten women’s and three coeducational teams. In sports that are tied to the Coast Guards’ core missions – sailing, rifle and pistol – cadets participate at the Division I level.

The most exceptional athletes regularly compete in national championships, and earn distinction as All-Americans, national and conference champions, and Academic All-Conference team members.
