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.


 

Volleyball Begins Wednesday, August 1st
The team is open to all girls in the 5th – 8th grade.  The students in grades 6-8, however, will be given an opportunity to fill the roster first,
and the students in grade 5 will be able to TRY OUT for the team. Here are the specifics:

  • Volleyball players must submit a current physical that covers the ENTIRE season from August 1 until the end of October, so if your son or daughter has a physical on file, be aware that they only last one 12-month period.

  • Players will also need to submit four total forms (link above) on the first day the student attends open gym.

  • Open gyms for all interested girls grades 5-8 will begin Wednesday, August 1.
    Any interested girl in grades 5-8 are eligible.
    Girls should wear modest athletic wear (no leggings or very short shorts), tennis shoes, and knee pads.  They should also bring water bottles and any forms.

Here is the OPEN GYM schedule:
Wed, Aug 1 from 9-11 am
Thurs, Aug 2 from 9-11 am
Fri, Aug 3 from 9-11 am
Mon, Aug 6 from 9-11 am
Tues, Aug 7 from 9-11 am

  • The official roster will be determined on Tuesday, August 7, and 5th grade students will be notified at that time whether or not there will be room on the roster for them.
    All students on the roster will need to pay a $50 athletic fee for the season.

  • Practices begin Thursday, August 9. We will NOT be practicing Monday-Thursday during the first week.

Here is the schedule through the first week of school:
Thurs, Aug 9 from 3:30-5:00
Fri, Aug 10 from 3:30-5:00
Sat, Aug 11 from 9-11 am
Fri, Aug 17 from 3:30-5:00
Sat, Aug 18 from 9-11 am

  • For those new to the middle school schedule of games, traditionally practices follow school during the week and Friday night is game night. 
    On Fridays, four teams go to one location and play two separate matches against two separate teams. There are usually two Saturday tournaments. Those are TBA.

Happy to answer any questions.

Cross-Country Begins Monday, August 6th
The team is open to all boys and girls in the 5th – 8th grade.
The season will begin with a 7 day running camp at Huntington Beach in Bay Villiage.  (We meet at the top)
Practices begin promptly at 8 AM and wrap up by 9.

Once school begins, we practice Mon, Tues, Thurs & Fridays from 3:45 – 4:45.
Over the course of the season we hope to attend 4-5 meets where runners will compete in 1.5 or 2.0 mile race.
The season typically wraps up no later than the first week in October.  (meet depending)

Runners need a water bottle and a decent pair of running shoes.
All athletic forms need completed and sports fee paid before your athlete can participate.  (athletic forms)
The school office is the best place to send forms and fees.  I will take forms at Huntington, but Angie is better.

Let me know if your athlete is interested. 

Happy to answer any questions.
