I highly doubt I will obtain a nomination or LOA this year due to lacking leadership positions, so I'm making plans to join ROTC at a civilian school.

I'll be reapplying next year for sure, and I'm looking for ways to increase my chances.

I got a 2050 on the SAT, 32 composite on the ACT, I played varsity hockey for 3 years, and I've worked around 25 hours a week as an intern at a bank since I was 16. I have a decent amount of volunteering done, all I'm lacking is leadership positions.

Thank you if you can help at all.

First - don't sell yourself short. working 25 hours a week as an intern in a bank while in high school shows leadership.

If you do not win an appointment this year and wish to reapply, joining ROTC with or without a scholarship will give you plenty of leadership opportunities.

You can also apply to the prep school and I agree with the prior poster. DO NOT SELL YOURSELF SHORT. Part of leadership is having the confidence in yourself. Try to get your SAT's up to 2100 or 2200; be in the top 1/3 of your class; continue with the hockey and stay involved with your volunteering.
