    When USNA reviews your varsity sport career are they looking solely at participation and leadership, or do they look at your individual skill level (Assuming you are not being recruited for Navy Sports)? In other words, would it be a looked upon negatively if you may not be the best athlete (Perhaps new to the sport) on the team, even though you may have performed well on the CFA?

    Does USNA even know your ranking on the team?

    Thanks.

    They'll pay attention to how good you are. You have to tell them any awards you have earned. They care if you lettered vs. varsity. They want the best of the best, and being good at something is important while just doing something is worthless. They want to know you have the ability to excel and a competitive edge.

    That being said, being the best isn't a make it or break it thing. It probably isn't even one of the things that would be "important" according to the people who want to know, but if you could choose the All-State captain vs. the guy who joined junior year and won a varsity letter because that team was the easiest to make at the school which would you rather have at your school, moving on to leading sailors and marines in combat zones around the world? (which is the main purpose of the physical mission)
