|UAA Air Force and Army ROTC cadets compete annually|
in the Commander's Cup.
This year’s competition was held at the Wells Fargo Sports Complex on UAA’s Main Campus and featured five events – volleyball, dodgeball, capture the flag, tire flip tug of war and an obstacle course. The events emphasize team cohesion, strategic planning and physical fitness as well as endurance in a friendly competitive atmosphere.

The competition was planned and organized by Air Force Cadet Stephan Jenkins and Army Cadet Nikki Polzin. The two determined the five events, organized the location and briefed teammates on rules for each.
Army ROTC emerged victorious this year, defeating Air Force ROTC to reclaim the trophy. Congratulations to both teams for their hard work and dedication!
The ROTC programs at UAA help develop students to become future officers in the military while pursuing their respective degrees. For more information visit www.uaa.alaska.edu/afrotc and www.uaa.alaska.edu/armyrotc.
