Every cadet an athlete. Every athlete a cadet.
VMI fields 18 NCAA Division I teams as well as club and intramural sports.
While the sports vary from year to year based on the interests of the cadets, the standard Club Sports include boxing, rugby, soccer, ice hockey, basketball, marathon, triathlon, softball, lacrosse, and alpine skiing. Clubs compete against other college clubs. New cadets may apprentice on a club sport team during the Ratline and enjoy full member status after the Ratline ends.
Cadets who are not on an intercollegiate or club sports team may participate in intramural sports, in which participants represent their companies in competition within the cadet regiment.
