From the Co-Presidents

Hello CPC families!

As we close out 2023 and welcome 2024, we wish you a joyous holiday season celebrating

with family and friends. Thank you so much for your support of the USAFA Colorado Parents’ Club in 2023.

We are looking forward to attending the Colorado All Service Academy Ball (CASAB) on

December 29th. The CASAB committee has been working hard to make this a fun and festive event. See more CASAB information below. We hope to see you there!

There are many CPC activities planned for 2024 - starting with Valentine's Goodie Bag

assembly in February. With this and all of our planned activities, we need your help to make

them happen. This is the framework of our community. Please join us!

Our club by-laws reflect that all board members need to have a current year cadet in order to hold a board position. We do have some graduating board members and we wish their cadets strength in the final stretch. Our club is awesome! To make sure we can keep it going, please consider sharing your time and talents:

  • 2024-2025 – President
  • 2024-2025 – Vice-President
  • 2024-2025 – Secretary
  • 2024-2025 – Treasurer
  • 2024-2025 - Fundraising Coordinator
  • 2024 -2025- I-Day Chair(s)
  • 2025-2026 - Webmaster
  • 2025-2026 - CASAB Point of Contact

You can send an email to [email protected] to find out more information for any of these positions. Some descriptions are listed below.

Wishing you a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year!

Colorado All Service Academy Ball

December 29, 2023

This year's Colorado All Service Academy Ball (CASAB) is scheduled for Friday, December 29, 2023 at the Historic Antlers Hotel in Colorado Springs. This year's CASAB is hosted by the United States Naval Academy, and the theme is "From the Sea to the Stars". 


Each year we have the unique opportunity to celebrate all of the amazing young men and women from Colorado who are currently attending a service academy. The celebration is open to all Colorado cadets and their families. It is a great opportunity to participate with your Cadet in a historic military function. In addition, CPC covers the cost for those C1C's that attend the ball. You should have received the special code to register your firstie. Please reach out to [email protected] with any questions.


Steeped in military customs and traditions, the CASAB promotes military education, socialization, and camaraderie among Rocky Mountain Midshipmen and Cadets across all Services. The Ball includes the Posting of the Colors, POW/MIA Tribute, motivational speakers, dinner, dancing, and entertainment. Cadets/midshipmen classes will be recognized, and there will be multiple opportunities for guests to learn about the similarities and difference between the Five Services Academies.
