Athletic Forms     Volunteer Sign-Up
The purpose and intent of our sports programs at WCA is to bring glory to God through participation and involvement in athletics.  Our goal is to develop, within those who participate, the character traits of Jesus Christ; producing positive Christian men and women who honor the Lord both on and off the playing field.

WCA believes that the condition of the heart comes before the score of the game.  When winning is kept in the right perspective, our student athletes are allowed to develop without the fear of failure.

The Fall Season begins in early August.

Even if your student has not previously expressed interest in participating, they are more than welcome to join the team of their choice.
Please have your athlete come dressed ready to play.

Plan to join your student-athlete for a brief team meeting at the beginning of the first practice to review important information about the season. If you have any questions prior to the first practice please contact Jake Hardy. jhardy@westsideacademy.org
