By now you've seen all the information coming out regarding COVID-19. Some of you are at the forefront of this fight and are experiencing firsthand the tough decisions installation commanders are making to protect our Soldiers, Civilians and Families. The health, welfare and safety of our athletes is our highest priority.
To combat the spread of the virus, the Armed Forces Sports Working group has made the decision to cancel the remaining FY20 sports Championships.
As a result of cancelling of the Armed Forces Championships, the All-Army Sports program will be suspending applications until the FY21 Sports Calendar is published. Once the Armed Forces Sports calendar is published the All-Army Sports office will notify the Sports Directors (and whoever else is on this distro list) and email all athletes and coaches who submitted FY20 applications. In addition, the calendar will be posted to our social media pages and website.
Be sure to follow us on Instagram, Facebook (All Army Sports) and Twitter. Please share how you are training for the 2021 sports season by tagging All Army Sports in your photos and videos. We look forward to bringing home the GOLD when COVID-19 is no longer a risk.
The All-Army Sports office would like to remind everyone we must all practice disciplined social distancing and threat awareness, no matter where we are or what we are doing. Follow CDC protection measure guidance. Be a leader and make sure those in your sphere of influence are doing the same. Stay safe and Army Strong.
Ready to fulfill your individual athletic potential? Then the All Army Sports Program might be for you. In All Army Sports, Soldiers from Active Duty, Reserve and National Guard compete in a variety of sports at the highest levels to include Armed Forces, USA Nationals and Military World Games. We support Soldier readiness and well-being through athletic performance, military bearing and competitive spirit.
Participants in the All Army Sports Program are called Soldier-Athletes because they must be Soldiers first and outstanding athletes second. Soldier-Athletes must apply to be selected for the All Army program. Soldier-Athletes represent the Army in Armed Forces Sports Championships and national and international competitions.
All Army Sports is a short-term opportunity that may last between four days and up to three months, depending on your sport and whether you’re selected for higher competition. It is not a change in Military Occupation Specialty (MOS) or a Permanent Change of Station (PCS).
* Soldier-Athletes must apply to be selected for the All Army Sports Program and require Command approval before they can be considered. Reviewing officials include All Army Sports staff and the Army Coaches of each designated sport. They consider the applicant’s background, past performances, athletic awards and sports standards. Applicants have the opportunity to supplement their applications with newspaper articles, letters of recommendation, award certificates or other forms of support.
If you’re interested in applying for an All Army Sports team, please fill out the application.
