Hello everyone, my name is Megan and I am currently a Junior in High School. It has always been my dream to attend the Air Force Academy. I know that varsity sports are somewhat important to your application, and I'm kind of concerned. A few weeks ago, I quit my high school soccer team due to some serious issues I was having with my coaches and also a few players. To sum it up, I had to quit in order to protect my own emotional and metal sanity. Continuing would've caused too much emotional stress which wasn't healthy for me. I do not currently play any other sports at my school, but am involved in a few rec soccer leagues (which I plan on sticking with). I was thinking of maybe joining either my schools tennis or softball team. I have never played tennis, and haven't played softball since middles school, so there's no guarantee I'd make varsity (my school is not that great at sports in general, and they don't cut people on those teams due to low numbers of players, so I would probably make JV as a junior. My question is, how much would it impact my application if I don't have a varsity sport on it, or if I don't make varsity until senior year? Could I improve my application by showing my physical strengths on my CFA? What else can I do to help? I have other qualities which I feel would help out, such as being an IB diploma program student, having a 3.875 GPA, being in Marching band, pep band, and concert band, being an NHS member, and being on my schools Science Olympiad team. But is this not enough without variety sports? I am just a little nervous that this will have a negative impact on my application. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
