Hello! I'm a rising Junior and I've been working my tail off to get into the Academy since Freshman year. I have a 4.0, robotics team captain, hundreds of hours of volunteer time, student pilot...pretty much the same as anyone else on here, except for something that has me really nervous. I've been trying for two years now to get a sport--my high school has no sports program (no really, we don't. Nothing) and at my age the only sports clubs that would accept me are competitive and looking for prior experience, and also very expensive (because they're private). My parents are not willing to spend the time or money on getting me to do a sport, and honestly I'm freaking out a little. I keep in shape, and I run 3k and 5ks. Is that something I could put on my résumé in lieu of sports? Does anyone know if the Academy will recognize my situation and cut me some slack? Just in case the answer is no, I'm looking around everywhere for any sport my parents would support but so far they've all been a no-go. Any suggestions or information? Thank you all so much!
