    They definately have a team....it's considered an intramural but the players on the team definitely don't treat it that way. They usually put together one of the best teams in the area.

    intramurals

    Speaking of intramurals, I haven't been able to figure out what is available from viewing the website. Anyone know this information?

    There really isn't a formal intramural program....most midshipmen at the Academy play at least one intercollegiate sport and many are on multiple teams. Those that don't play are usually involved in the waterfront activities or the band (some do these as well as NCAA sports). If a midshipman wants to play something that isn't offered and can drum up enough support from fellow midshipmen it can usually be set up. I know in the past there has been ice hockey, paintball, ski/snowboard team, etc.
