Athletic Overview

At Summit Christian Academy athletics are an important part of life. The qualities that lead to success in athletics -- competition, hard work, discipline, character, and full use of one's ability -- can lead to greater success in life. By emphasizing participation and fun, Summit maintains a proper perspective about the role of athletics in a school community. We give our students many opportunities to compete in team and individual sports. Competitive programs begin in fifth grade and continue through the secondary level in high school.

Summit's Athletic Commitment

  • Physically: Our athletes are encouraged and inspired to develop to their full potential including the ability to go beyond the limits of normal endurance.
  • Emotionally: Our athletes learn to control themselves under pressure. In a single contest, the athlete may need to deal with elation, frustration, anger, and fear. He or she must learn to win gracefully and to bounce back in the face of defeat.
  • Intellectually: Our athletes develop and exercise their minds as they learn rules, strategies, and the plays of the game. They develop mental toughness when they learn that their bodies can be put to the test.
  • Socially: Our athletes learn to submit to authority as they interact with coaching staff and operate under the regulations of the game. Through team play, they learn cooperation, communication, and loyalty as the team strives toward a common goal.
  • Spiritually: In the end, none of this would be possible if it were not for our Lord. We glorify God, whether we win or lose. The Lord has blessed us with a great opportunity and an ability to play sports. We honor him when we play.
