How sports are important to CMA and me

By: Matthew Weaver on Mar 31, 2021 | Categories: General


I have had a great experience with my athletic coaches here at Camden Military Academy. I have played a sport every season that I have been here. Those sports include Cross Country in the fall, Basketball in the winter, and Golf in the spring. I had the pleasure of playing golf for Coach Mobley and basketball for Coach Horn during their final years at CMA. Both of these men were very wise and enlightened every one of their players daily.

When you play a sport at CMA, it takes out a large part of your free time. This means that the people who participate and join the teams really care and want to improve their skills. One thing that is unique about Camden is that every teacher must coach a sport or run a club. This gives the teachers an opportunity to really build a relationship with the cadet and bond with them. I have genuinely enjoyed competing in sports as a CMA Spartan and would encourage every cadet to go and try it out. You will not be disappointed!
