Athletic Program

Our Purpose
The SCA Athletic Program provides an avenue for children to play various sports each year with their fellow students in an environment that prioritizes Christ first, team second, and self third.

Our Ethos
Sports have become a very important part of society, and can teach children how to live as a Christian in that society. Our goal is not only to coach, but to mentor players in the ways of the Lord during the season as an extension of what they are being taught at home.

With a Christ-centered perspective, the aim of the SCA athletics department is to carry the witness of Christ to other teams and coaches. We love to compete, but glorifying the Lord in all areas of life is most important.

Program Leadership & How to Become Involved

It takes a tremendous amount of volunteers to have a successful athletic program. God has provided godly men and women to coach, assistant coach, schedule games and practices, run concessions, order uniforms, and coordinate the end of the season banquets.

 Involvement for SCA Parents and Students

SCA Athletics Program is in need of coaches for all the listed sports.  If you are gifted in a certain sport and would like to coach, please let us know. The program can always use coaches and those that have the gift of administration.
