Sports and athletics are an important part of the Christian school experience. From team sports to individual sports, students have the opportunity to show off their skills and hard work. Whether you're looking to play sports in high school or college, there are many options available. Organizations such as the National Christian School Athletics Association (NCSAA) and The Fellowship of Christian Athletes provide resources and support to Christian student-athletes.
At Lakeland Christian School in Florida, soccer teams for boys and girls are offered. North Cobb Christian School, a co-educational private Christian day school, houses more than 1,100 students in preschool through 12th grade. Sports seasons typically last 12 to 15 weeks, overshadowing most of the school semester and even part of the summer vacation. Athletes who excel enough at the high school level may even have the opportunity to play at the college level.
Organizations like NCSAA and FCA help high school students find opportunities to play sports at the next level. Prince Avenue Christian School seeks excellence in academics, fine arts and athletics from a biblical worldview. North Cobb Christian School is committed to Jesus Christ and offers excellent, Bible-based academic education in an enriching environment. It's important to note that some schools have a bad reputation when it comes to sports.
I have seen first-hand the pressures, problems and struggles of many athletes who may have achieved limited success in athletics, but who have failed in their studies, relationships and future careers. This is why it's important for schools to focus on building character and integrity in young people through sports competition. Christian schools do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, or national or ethnic origin in the administration of their admissions policies, education policies, scholarship programs and sports programs and other programs administered by schools. In conclusion, sports and athletics are an important part of the Christian school experience.
