1. The Army World Class Athlete Program (WCAP) supports and guides nationally ranked Soldier-athletes who compete and succeed in the Olympic and Paralympic Games, while maintaining military careers and promoting the U.S. Army to the world. WCAP was established to provide Soldiers of world-class caliber with the opportunity to train full time for national and international sports competitions leading to selection and participation with United States national teams, while maintaining their military specialties. Soldiers selected to participate in the program serve in this assignment at the discretion of the Army and may be released and reassigned from the program at any time based on the needs of the Army.

2. In furtherance of this mission, only Soldier-athletes, who meet the criteria below will be considered for admittance into the program. Any athlete applying to the WCAP who fails to meet the criteria should expect to have their application denied. Furthermore, merely meeting the entrance standard does not guarantee admittance into the program. The standards laid out are the minimum for consideration of a potential applicant.

3. Soldier-athletes who meet the standards below are deemed athletically qualified for entry into the Army WCAP and will considered for acceptance in to the program for the 2020 Summer Paralympic Games Tokyo, Japan or the 2022 Winter Paralympic Games at Beijing, China.
