The Commander's Cup (CC) is an athletic competition between the three services (Army, Air Force, and Navy) that lasts throughout the year. There are various Commander's Cup sports including Basketball, Soccer, Volleyball, Cross Country, Softball, Dodgeball, and Tug of War. Cadets spend the semester practicing together and then take on the different services at a refereed game.
At the end of the year during the Tri-Service Award Ceremony, the service that has won the most games is presented with the coveted Commander's Cup.
Many cadets participate in the various CC sports, and some end up becoming the team captain.
