MORE THAN A GAME
CCS Athletics is about more than just winning. We seek to forge character on and off the court and to prepare our students to become leaders in life.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. The CCS Varsity Women’s Tennis Team joined with Grace Christian School during a recent tennis match to show their support and raise awareness for this cause. Though the teams are fierce rivals on the courts, these ladies united in Christ and gathered together to read scripture and to pray for encouragement for special people they know who are fighting cancer. The teams wore T-shirts of Faith, Love, and Hope and created a blessings basket for a few CCS moms currently battling this disease. The Lady Knights went on to win the match (9-0) over the Grace Christian Eagles.
At Cary Christian School, we believe that athletics are an ideal complement to academics in the overall educational experience of our students. The playing field, the pool, and the court provide excellent places for the development of self-discipline, a strong work ethic, and commitment. We seek to encourage the positive benefits of teamwork and sportsmanship as students test their skills against the opponent and one another. Our athletic program currently includes thirty-nine competitive sport teams and spirit squads.
We also believe that participation in extracurricular activities, especially athletics, provides a good opportunity to encourage Christian students in their relationships with Jesus Christ. These activities also enhance the atmosphere of the Cary Christian School student body, providing students and parents with an opportunity to express positive school spirit.

In some sports, seventh and eighth grade students are eligible to participate on a varsity team.

Coaches will talk with players and parents to explain reasons for non-participation in a game.
