Keeping eyes on the prize, senior cadet leadership provides direction, leadership, and motivation for cadet candidates – all in pursuit of the coveted Admirals Cup prize which is awarded at the end of the two-week orientation.

Broken down into 7 categories, Admirals Cup consists of; knowledge, esprit de corps, intra-murals, physical training, team building, marching, and monomy racing. During the two-weeks of Orientation, the Commandants Staff, who provides overall leadership and guidance for all cadets, monitor the standings for each of the seven companies.
