On the first day of the Academy each student will be required to participate in four physical fitness standard tests as listed.

Cadets will be tested in the following areas for admission to the academy

  1. 3-Minute Step Test
  2. Push-ups
  3. 300 Meter Run
  4. Sit-ups
  5. 1-Mile Run

Cadets will participate in an ongoing physical fitness program which will be scheduled four days per week. In most cases fitness training will be done as a group and will be conducted in the evenings. All students are expected to apply their maximum effort during physical fitness training, as will at all other times.
