My son is a rising junior and extremely involved in his school's NJROTC. He is captain of the Rifle team, a member of the Fancy (Exhibition) team, a member of the Academic team, and has been asked to join the Color Guard. He was on the PT team but the school ended it. He is already third in "command" (out of 150+ cadets) and was one of only 2 cadets chosen to attend Leadership Academy this summer. He attends boot camp every summer. Etc, etc, etc. My worry is that all this NJROTC participation means he does not have any free time to join a school sport. He has already lettered in rifle (since his freshman year), and while his school considers it a "sport," does it count at the USNA as a sport? He does hold leadership positions in every NJROTC activity he is involved in, but would dropping one of those for a traditional sport make him an "overall" better candidate for the academy?
