At Shining Light Academy, we are proud of the athletics program we have built, and we encourage your child to get involved if they want to play sports. We have multiple sports teams and have won multiple state championships in athletics. Whether your child wants to play basketball, volleyball, soccer, or another sport, there is a place for them on one of our teams.

Why should your child participate in athletics during their formative years? For starters, playing sports allows your child to stay physically active, which has a multitude of benefits for overall health. Playing sports can also help children learn discipline and time management, and studies show that students who play sports have higher levels of self-esteem and confidence. Additionally, students who play sports often perform better in school overall.

FAQs About Our Athletics Program

At Shining Light Academy, we are extremely proud of our athletics programs and believe it is one of many reasons why parents choose our Christian academy. Below, we have answered a few questions about our athletics program.

Does participating in athletics create a stronger all-around student?

We like to think so! Participating in a sport teaches students the power of hard work, discipline, and working within a team. Athletics are also a great place to make new friends and have fun, enriching the academic experience.

Do you offer flexible academic programs for athletes?

Yes! We are willing to work with our athletes so that they can thrive academically and athletically. For example, we offer a fifth-year college preparatory season for students looking to extend their athletic and academic careers. This allows us to facilitate additional opportunities students may have missed by graduating on time.

Another example of this is providing athletics for homeschool students who attend SLA part time.

What sports programs do you have?

We have most of the traditional sports programs schools in our area offer. Our year is divided into three sports seasons: fall, winter, and spring. Fall sports are men’s soccer and women’s volleyball. Winter sports are men’s and women’s basketball. We are also looking to add a cheer squad for the 2024-2025 school year! Finally, spring sports are golf, baseball, and women’s soccer.

Who can participate in your athletic programs?

Any SLA student may try out for sports teams starting in 5th grade.

How do I put my child in a sport at school?
At the start of every season, we will make sure parents receive communications about different athletics opportunities and tryout dates. Once your student makes the team, you will receive a schedule and correspondence from the team’s coach. You can also contact our front office at any time if you have questions.
