    Is it possible to play two sports while at the Academy? One varsity and one club sport in different seasons. My prospective major would be a Group 1 major. If anyone could shed some insight into this, that'd be great! Thank you!

    Much depends on the schedule. I know a varsity crew athlete who also played varsity basketball. It's allowed, but sometimes circumstances just make it impossible.

    It depends. I will follow that up with it depends on what Varsity Sport you are talking about. Remember at the D1 level, a Varsity sport isn't just something that you do when its "in season." It is a 365 day commitment with pre season conditioning, post season workouts, summer workouts. A Varsity coach will want full dedication from you. Also, some sports might be in season in one part of the year, but also have out of season competition too. For instance, golf is a spring sport, but they also play a fall schedule. This isn't their main season. Water polo, tennis, lacrosse and many other sports have these out of season schedules also.

    Agreed with the others, depends on both the Varsity and the Club sport. I know someone who plays Varsity Soccer in the fall and Varsity Lacrosse in the spring, and they've made it work despite the fact both teams spend a lot of time working out out of season as well. Some Varsity coaches are much more strict than others, and the same is true of club teams - it all comes down to how you want to spend your time, as well as what you have time for. There's also academics, other extracurriculars you may become involved in, and all your other duties as a Mid that cut major chunks out of your time as well.
