A Higher Standard of Performance
The goal of the Athletic Program at VFMC 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.
VFMC competes in football, soccer, volleyball (women), cross-country (men and women), basketball (men and women), wrestling, and softball (women). Depending on the level of interest, club sports may be formed with the approval of the Superintendent and Director of Student Activities.
Physical Development: Cadets must be sound in both body and mind. VFMC 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.
It is the responsibility of the institution and the Department of Athletics to adhere to all eligibility regulations set forth for the governance of interscholastic/intercollegiate athletics by the NJCAA. Nowhere else can a young person learn the lifelong lessons of teamwork and sportsmanship, nor does any other activity lend itself so completely to the development of the will to win.
