The United States Naval Academy sponsors 30 varsity-sports teams and 12 club-sports teams (along with 19 intramural-sports teams).12 Both men's and women's teams are called Navy Midshipmen or "Mids".3 They participate in the NCAA's Division I-A, as a non-football member of the Patriot League, a Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) independent school, and a member of the Collegiate Sprint Football League (men), Eastern Association of Rowing Colleges (men), Eastern Association of Women's Rowing Colleges, Eastern Intercollegiate Gymnastics League (men), and Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association. Navy is also one of approximately 300 members of the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC).

The most important sporting event at the academy is the annual Army–Navy Game. The 2011 season marked Navy's tenth consecutive victory over Army. The three major service academies (Navy, Air Force, and Army) compete for the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy, which is awarded to the academy that defeats the others in football that year (or retained by the previous winner in the event of a three-way tie).

Participation in athletics is, in general, mandatory at the Naval Academy and most Midshipmen not on an intercollegiate team must participate actively in intramural or club sports. There are exceptions for non-athletic Brigade Support Activities such as YP Squadron (a professional surface warfare training activity providing midshipmen the opportunity to earn the Craftmaster Badge) or the Drum and Bugle Corps.

Varsity-letter winners wear a specially-issued blue cardigan with a large gold "N" patch affixed. If they belong to a team that beats Army in any sport designated "Star" competition, they are also awarded a gold star ("N-Star") to affix near the "N" for each such victory.4

Croquet

There is an unofficial (but previous National Champion) croquet team.71 Legend has it that in the early 1980s, a Mid and a Johnnie (slang for a student enrolled at St. John's College, Annapolis), were in a bar and the Mid challenged the Johnnie by stating that Midshipmen could beat St. John's at any sport. The St. John's student selected croquet. Since then, every April on the St. John’s lawn, thousands attend the annual croquet match between St. John's and the 28th Company7273 of the Brigade of Midshipmen (originally the 34th Company before the Brigade was reduced to 30 companies). As of 2008,74 the Midshipmen had a record of 5 wins and 21 losses to the St John's team.73
