    What varsity sports at the USNA are MID's from club/intramural sports most likely to be able to walk on for?

Specifically, I want to walk on for the varsity basketball team, but I want to know how realistic that is, if I start off as a member of the USNA's intramural basketball team.

    Sports Requirements?

    High school Sophmore here planning on applying to USMA next year. Looking through the class profiles, I noticed that nearly every cadet in the class of 2020 (1,200 out of 1,210) participated in a varsity sport.

    Does varsity air rifle count?

    I'm a sophemore and I'm on the varsity air rifle team. I don't play any other sports, though. Will varsity air rifle count, or do I need to join another sport, even if I may not make varsity? Am I too late?

    Varsity sports question

    Hello! In the past, I've done two individual varsity sports (I didn't receive letters in them) and I'm contemplating between either doing Lacrosse or Football next where I know I'll receive a letter.
