Family Readiness Groups / Mobilization & Deployment

The Family Readiness Group (FRG) is a command-sponsored organization of Family Members, volunteers and Soldiers.

Together they provide mutual support and assistance creating a network of communication between Family Members, the Chain of Command and community resources.

Are you looking for a way to give back to your community? Army Community Service is looking for individuals who are interested in taking on such a task. FRGs help create a climate of mutual support within the unit and community. FRGs play an integral part in the Family and Soldier Readiness System (FSRS).

Intramural and Varsity Sports


All Army Sports provides athletically skilled Soldier athletes the opportunity to excel at the highest levels while competing for our Army and our country. Soldier/athletes train and compete in individual and team sports.

The best may find themselves competing against Air Force, Marine and Navy athletes on a national level in Armed Forces championships. The best military athletes may even advance to compete on an international field of play against athletes from around the world.

All Army Sports also contributes to the Soldier/athlete's readiness and overall well-being. When finished with competition, Soldiers return to their unit in better physical condition, along with a new appreciation of team building and enhanced leadership skills. Their unique perspective as a Soldier/athlete and first hand-experience gained in competing on the international stage makes them better athletes, but more importantly, better Soldiers. The espirit de corps and camaraderie developed on the field of play stays with Soldier/athletes long after they return to their unit, strengthening the bond between them and their fellow Soldiers.

To apply or learn more about All Army Sports, visit the  All Army Sports website or call the Varsity Sports Office.
