about us

Message from the AD

Dear Friends,

Every day I have the great honor of serving as the Director of Intercollegiate Athletics at Army West Point with our amazing young men and women who will serve as our nation's future leaders. On a daily basis, something special happens here at West Point that doesn't happen anywhere else in the world serving as an inspiration to our coaches, staff, administration and myself. It is imperative that we continually strive to provide our cadet-athletes with an extraordinary Division I athletic experience that develops leaders of character committed to the values of Duty, Honor, and Country.

We are very excited that for the past two years, the First Captain of the United States Corps of Cadets has been a Corps Squad athlete confirming our belief that athletics is a key contributor to the development of leaders of character. We have also had one Marshall Scholar, one Rhodes Scholar and numerous academic honorees on the conference, regional and national levels. We believe that the best leader laboratory we have is our cadet-athletes because they are measured each day on the fields of friendly strife. Athletics serves our over 900 cadet-athletes as they are learning about team-building, reliance on the cadet next to them, competitiveness and communication.

Your donation to the Army A Club and every ticket that you purchase directly impacts our ability to assist over 900 cadet-athletes. Although we have seen great success in achieving our fundraising and ticket sales goals, there is much more work that needs to be done. Given the current government fiscal climate, we are being asked to pursue our mission with fewer resources. Now more than ever, your support is a crucial part of our ability to keep providing our cadet-athletes the experience they deserve.

As West Point strives to adapt itself to an ever-changing world, so too does the Army Athletic Department. We are all dedicated to staying ahead of these changes and remain driven to provide the highest level cadet-athlete experience attainable.

On behalf of all the young men and women that put on the Army West Point uniform, thank you for your unwavering support.

Be well - GO ARMY!
