Sailors who possess the athletic skills to compete above the intramural level in team or individual sports have the chance to represent the Navy at higher-level athletic competitions through the Navy Sports Program.
All-Navy teams participate in the Department of Defense's Sports Program and compete in the Armed Forces Sports Championships against teams from the Marine Corps, Army and Air Force. Following inter-service competition, the very best Navy athletes may be selected to compete as members of the All-Armed Forces Team, and participate in the Military World Games, national and international competitions.
The Navy Sports Program fields all-Navy teams in boxing, bowling, cross country, wrestling, basketball, soccer, triathlon, volleyball, softball, golf, rugby and marathon. The Navy Sports Program also assists athletes who participate at the national or international level in activities that are not normally offered on a base, such as rowing, archery and shooting. Additionally, Armed Forces teams are selected to compete in international competition in tae kwon do, shooting, sailing, cycling and judo.
