At MMA athletics are an important part of the educational experience. Athletes are exposed to many situations that enhance their total education. They will be exposed to the relationship of work and sacrifice in order to achieve. They will experience the joy of winning and disappointment of losing, while learning to accept both with grace and good will. Athletes learn that few goals are attained with ease where hard work and dedication are necessary. The purpose of athletics is to promote the physical, mental, moral, social, and emotional well-being of the individual players. Our coaching staff seeks to develop and encourage cadets, and to provide an environment in which all student-athletes can realize their potential.

Massanutten and SFC. Kurtz taught me to never quit. No matter how adverse a situation may have been, I always learned to tough it out. Massanutten taught me to always drive forward and pursue for nothing but the best. Massanutten instilled the military values and ideals that make a good soldier, but also a great civilian/citizen.
