World Class Athlete Program (WCAP)

Our Mission

Our mission is to develop Department of Air Force athletes and prepare them to successfully qualify for Team USA and compete on the world stage at the Olympic Games.

Our Vision

Our vision for relocating the management offices to Colorado Springs allows us to integrate the World Class Athlete Program (WCAP) and Department of the Air Force Shooting program management with the International Governing Bodies, the US Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC) and the US Air Force Academy (USAFA).  This move is designed to improve service and program recognition, improve athlete performance, cultivate professional skills and build resiliency as military service members.  Additionally, these programs strive to be marquee public relations and recruiting programs for the Department of the Air Force.
