Goal: Every Cadet On A Team. Every Cadet An Athletic Experience.

The goal of the Athletic Program at VFMA is for each cadet to receive a quality experience both in the classroom and in their athletic pursuits. To ensure that each student-athlete reaches this goal, the Athletic Department is committed to the academic and financial requirements of our athletic programs by exercising well-founded institutional control.

The Academy offers the following sports as part of the athletic program for cadets in grades 9 through 12: football, soccer, cross-country, basketball, swimming, wrestling, lacrosse, rugby, and baseball.

Physical Development
Cadets must be sound in both body and mind. VFMA integrates athletics, physical training, and a cadet’s personal fitness program to help students achieve fitness levels exceeding national norms. The program focuses on flexibility, muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardio-respiratory endurance, and body composition. The physical conditioning program is designed to meet the individual needs of cadets, while placing emphasis on daily fitness and wellness as an important aspect of their future well-being and ability to accomplish their goals and objectives.
