The importance of sportsmanship and safety
As our successful winter sports season continues, please click here to watch a public service announcement from our partners at the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference. In addition to the importance of sportsmanship, the Academy is taking steps to ensure that our fans have an enjoyable and safe experience at our events. Please know that all bags are subject to search before admission to sporting events in Alumni Hall. Your support and understanding of both of these important measures is appreciated.
