The base sports program aims to provide a variety of safe sport activities that allow and encourage year-round participation for the Wright-Patterson AFB community. Intramural and varsity sports assist with promotion of physical fitness, health, and morale as well as the development of several traits and skills such as leadership, fellowship, competitive and cooperative spirit, socialability, and teamwork. All intramural and varsity sports are free of charge.
Varsity sports are developed to provide opportunities for Air Force personnel with higher level sporting skills. Varsity sports offer a more competitive environment and members are typically selected to a varsity team based upon performance in tryouts. Varsity teams typically compete against local colleges and universities as well as other military teams from various locations.
