Athletics

After careful evaluation of the current public health situation, we have developed a plan to gradually begin afternoon practices with all the necessary care and precautions. We hope to begin to slowly expand our capacity with discernment for the well-being of our student athletes! It is important that we allow athletics to alleviate some of the pressures of the confinement these past few months.

SCS Athletics is organized on a developmental continuum beginning with the athlete's first introduction to sports and ending with the high-level competition of high school varsity sports. Even though we cannot host games or participate in tournaments during the pandemic, the Athletics program is still working to develop players of strength, skill, and humility. At the elementary school level, belonging is important and skills are new. At this level, athletes have opportunities to play as much as possible regardless of skill and are encouraged to try multiple sports. The emphasis is on participation, developing skills, and building confidence. At the middle school level, developing skill remains important with an added focus on cultivating teamwork. At the high school level, athletes are maturing physically and mentally and the focus shifts to competition and performance. Team strategy becomes more complex.

Competitive athletic excellence serves team before self, wins with humility, perseveres through adversity, and demands perpetual improvement for the glory of God.

 

 Juan Herrera, Athletic Director 

 "They are passionate and persistent. 

 They work as a team. They play

 tough, but with integrity. They

 practice sportsmanship both on and

 off the field. They are more than just

 athletes. They are Eagles.

 Sometimes they fly in formation and

 sometimes they soar solo, but one

 thing is certain: The SCS Eagles 

 always aim higher than the score.

 See you at the game!"
