The rise of Army Ultimate has been surprisingly quick. The team has been in existence at West Point for less than 10 years, but has grown into a team that will contend for a bid to Nationals every year. Balancing the demands of a military academy with ultimate provides unique challenges. Most weeks, Army can only hold two official practices and relies on the dedication of the players to improve their game on their own time. While this challenge is hard to overcome, it also proves the dedication of the team members and has created a bond between passionate, hardworking brothers. The leadership has leveraged this team dynamic to help grow the team exponentially. In 2015, Army went to their conference championship with only nine rostered players. This season, the roster is loaded with young talent that will help this growth continue as Army seeks to contend for national championships year after year. You would be hard pressed to find a team that will play harder for each other than the Army team.
