Cadet Clubs

Part of balancing the demands of life at the United States Air Force Academy is finding time for hobbies and interests. About 75 percent of cadets are involved in at least one of the Academy’s more than 90 active clubs, covering everything from fly fishing to falconry.

Clubs are a great opportunity for cadets to enhance their professional development by taking on additional leadership roles, or opportunities to manage personnel and financial resources and learn administrative and logistics skills. Many cadets become involved with clubs to find and foster new friendships while pursuing an area of interest.

Clubs are run by cadets, for cadets, with oversight from an Air Force officer, senior enlisted member or civilian on staff at the Academy. These leaders organize meetings, practices or competitions and serve as role models for cadets.
