Parents' Clubs & Spirit Committees

Just as U.S. Air Force Academy cadets support each other, so do the parents of cadets. They provide shoulders to lean on, voice their opinions, control rumors and develop lifelong friendships—many continuing their membership in a country-wide support system, long after their sons and daughters graduate.

Local Parents' Club Management

Parents’ Clubs exist because the Academy experience is like no other. They provide support and help pass on information to new Academy parents, as well as ensure parents know what is going on at the United States Air Force Academy.

Parents’ Clubs also help parents support their cadets! At the Academy, try as we may, we cannot always adequately articulate the hardships associated with the regimen each cadet experiences. Parents’ Clubs can help to reassure parents, as well as help them to understand the pressures on the cadets and their parents are enormous from the very beginning and these pressures often disrupt communications between the students and the parents.

Parents’ Clubs help recruit other outstanding young men and women to the Academy, and host cadets when they travel for Academy-sponsored events. They sponsor tailgate parties at football games. They provide fans for “away” sporting events and cadet visits, host events at home such as; Appointee get together, military balls, and send care packages to cadets/cadet candidates. Some Parents’ Clubs provide financial support for cadet activities, which make the Academy a more enriching experience. Each club is run independently of each other and the Academy. Some Parents’ Clubs are bigger than others, and that is fine as we are all here to support the cadets and cadet candidates!

Parents’ Club Presidents Conference

Each year the Academy hosts a Parents’ Club Presidents Conference right before Parents’ Weekend. A Reception is normally held at the Superintendent’s home the Wednesday before Parents’ Weekend and the conference is Thursday at Doolittle Hall. You may sell your items during the conference.

On Friday of Parents’ Weekend, there is an Information Fair at Arnold Hall that some Parents’ Clubs have a table to sell approved products. As soon as the Parent Liaison gets the information required from Arnold Hall they will send out the required information to the Parents’ Clubs to submit for reservation.
