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. No matter how things turn out on the field they portray the Academy and the Air Force in a positive manner. I am sure that this commitment and dedication will serve them well as they graduate and go on to serve the country. Go Falcons!
