MORE THAN A GAME

ccs_tennis_team_breast_cancer_awareness_month

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.

Knights Athletics

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.

Athletic Program Objectives

Varsity (grades 9-12): The objective of the varsity level is to exhibit impeccable sportsmanship and excellence. Varsity athletics is highly competitive and advanced. At this level, the athlete will be scrutinized more thoroughly in his character, ability, attitudes, and skills. He will play before many witnesses, including the Lord. The most qualified athletes will be allowed on the varsity team. Playing time will be at the discretion of the coach. In some sports, seventh and eighth grade students are eligible to participate on a varsity team.

Middle School (grades 6-8): The objectives of the middle-school program are improvement through participation and the development of basic skills. Coaches will also teach basic rules and principles of the game. Middle-school athletics will allow each student the opportunity to participate and grow in sportsmanship and Christian character. Each athlete will be allowed to participate in every game contingent on their attitude and participation in practice. Coaches will talk with players and parents to explain reasons for non-participation in a game.

Team Size

A maximum of twenty athletes will be carried on the roster for volleyball and basketball. If more athletes turn out, coaches will make a cut. All cuts will be made by the varsity coach within the first week of practice. Prior to announcing the final rosters and cuts, the coach must meet with the Athletic Director. The coach and Athletic Director are to ensure that cuts made in compliance with these guidelines are in the best long-term interests of the program.

Qualifications

Grade Point Average: All CCS students must maintain a G.P.A. of 2.5 or above to participate in extra-curricular activities.

Pre-Participation: All participants must turn in a completed interim questionnaire, physical form, and emergency medical form, and must have paid their activity fee for that sport.

Fees

High School: All Sports – $125.00
Middle School: All Sports – $100.00
