The tryouts for the jump team are rigorous. They only take a select few each year and many people try out. The tryouts are very physically demanding and they last a few days including interviews with current members of the team.
Extremely competitive. There is very little money left for the club team, so veterans usually stay.

Everyone at West Point participates in numerous varsity or intramural sports. There are several courses that are required, such as boxing, wrestling, combatives, swimming, gymnastics, as well as a lifetime sport. Intramurals and pick-up games are huge at West Point. Since so many of the cadets were athletes in high school, it is really easy to play just about any sport that you are interested in playing. It's also really easy to pick up a new sport because there are so many people who are willing and able to teach you. It really is an ideal situation for anyone interested in having fun and keeping fit.
For cadets who are not varsity athletes, there is an intramural program in place that allows them to hone both their athletic skills and their leadership talents. The majority of cadets cherish the opportunity to blow off steam and love having the opportunity to learn new things. It allows all students the opportunity to remain active without forcing them to commit major amounts of time to being on a collegiate sports team. There are, of course, actual athletes at West Point. They compete on the national level and consistently draw crowds and praise. The Army-Navy football game has become one of the most highlighted games in the country.
