About Scottsdale Christian Athletics
Scottsdale Christian Academy's athletic program is co-curricular in nature. This is to say that its primary purpose is to complement the academic program. The athletic program works cooperatively with other activity programs to produce life-long learners who walk with Jesus.
Our Athletic Department provides the student-athlete with the opportunity to develop athletic talents, achieving the highest possible level of competitiveness, without sacrificing the time and energies necessary to excel academically and within a setting that allows for devotional experiences and spiritual growth. Understanding that our students, and even our coaches from time to time will learn lessons through mistakes, we attempt to compete as Jesus would. This means doing our best, as if God was our audience (Col. 3:23) and bringing a sportsmanship and zeal to interscholastic athletics that would model the characteristics of Christ.
SCA competes in various interscholastic sports from grades 7-12. In Junior High, we are members of the Valley Christian Schools League and in some sports, the Catholic Youth Athletic Association. At the High School level, we are members of the Arizona Interscholastic Association. It is our view that competing in a God-honoring way (Gal. 5:22-23) includes abiding by all rules pertaining to these associations and sharing in the responsibilities required by these associations with member institutions.
All Athletes and Parents must watch the Sports Risks Video and inform the Athletic office that you have watched and understood it
