- The West Point Company Athletic Program is an intra-collegiate sports program that provides a competitive sport experience for over 2400 cadets.
- Company athletics is more than a recreational release for cadets. It is an educational program designed to develop future Army officers. By design it cultivates mental toughness and instills a “never quit” attitude as two companies compete on “the fields of friendly strife”.
- The name “company athletics” serves as a reminder that this is an athletics program committed to teaching the Army Values, cultivating the warrior ethos and instilling pride in the military culture. This is not your typical “intramural” program at a civilian university
“Upon the fields of friendly strife are sown the seeds that, upon other fields, on other days, will bear the fruits of victory.”
- General Douglas MacArthur
The Mission Of Company Athletics Is To:
Develop Warrior Athletes of Character. A warrior athlete of character is a team player who combines mental toughness, perseverance, and athletic skill with exemplary sportsmanship and fair play. The warrior athlete of character has a teachable spirit and demonstrates the drive, will and courage to stay committed and succeed, regardless of the challenge.
Build Teams of Significance. A team of significance is a group of warrior athletes that bond together into a single, selfless unit and accomplish memorable feats through their commitment to excellence. Essential components for a team of significance are character, cohesion, commitment, competitive spirit, competency, communication, and caring.
