Son is taking very tough academic load all AP-Pre/AP classes. Participates sports and he will move up to JV as a 10th grader then move to varsity as an 11th and 12th grader in football. He will run varsity track and runs AAU track as well as a freshman. His school has JROTC but he did not take it this year, there is not enough room in his schedule to participate in sports and JROTC. If he did take JROTC he would have to attend summer school just to make up for the missed 7th period. ROTC and athletics in Texas is considered a PE course. So JROTC is not an option to keep up with his rigorous academic STEM endorsement. JV/Varsity athletics is very time consuming with games and practices after school as well as the team community service projects. He is very active in church youth. There is a CAP and a Sea Cadet unit in our area that may be an option for other ECA. How much consideration is weighed on varsity sports involvement vs. CAP/Sea Cadets/JROTC? I pulled the class 2021 profile and only 17% participated in Sea Cadets/CAP/JROTC. We have always been told USNA/USMA/USAFA all want past athletes. Any input on ECA such as Demolays and Fellowship of Christian Athletes is appreciated as well. To participate on a level athletically to be an impact player there seems to be no time for CAP/Sea Cadets and keep up the academic rigors needed to meet the academy's academic requirements.
