Overview of Athletics Program

The purpose and philosophy of our Athletic Program at Christian Academy Schools is to maintain the highest standards of Christian conduct and sportsmanship. We believe the Bible is our ultimate manual for Christian character and integrity. Our goal is for coaches, students, and parents to demonstrate the highest ideals of sportsmanship through athletic competition.

Christian Academy Schools is a proud member of the Idependent Christian Schools of Ohio Athletic Conference (ICSO). Fellow Conference members include: Grand Lake Christian School, Bowling Green Christian Academy, Calvary Christian Schools, Harvest Baptist Temple Schools, Ohio Eagles Homeschool Association, Marion Hawks Homeschool Association and the Urbana Crusaders Homeschool Association. Our athletes participate in volleyball and basketball in seasons. Our soccer and track teams participate independently as the other institutions in our conference do not have the numbers to participate in these other sports. We are also affiliated with the Ohio Christian Schools Athletic Association (OCSAA) which allows us to participate in state-wide end of the season tournaments in all sports, if we so choose.

Due to the size of our school and the costs that are associated with running a quality sports program, Christian Academy does require a fee to participate in our athletic program(s). There is a $200 fee per athlete for participation in an activity. There is a $50 fee for that student if they choose to participate in a second activity and only a $25 fee for that same athlete to participate in a third activity. These fees allow us to provide transportation to most away contests, hire quality and licensed officials, pay for bus drivers and utilities, to be able to afford end of the year awards to our athletes, and to be able to hire quality coaches for each sport.

Iron Eagle Award:
This award began in 1999 by Bruce Toal to recognize outstanding performance. This is our most prestigious award presented at the end of each sports season. This award is given to a high school junior or senior with recognized outstanding effort and exhibiting the following attributes:

1. Commitment - Bound to perform the actions and requirements necessary to complete the task. A commitment to academics as well as athletics is important.
2. Sportsmanship - Displays a consistent respect for teammates, opponents and coaches. The ability to win or lose graciously.
3. Performance - Demonstrates a high skill level and drive to reach the next level.
4. Spirituality - Understands and demonstrates the priority of God first in their lives.
5. Character - Above reproach.

Selection process: The Iron Eagle Award will be awarded based on the recommendation of the coach, superintendent, school administrators, teachers, and athletic director. This is not an automatic award but is only issued to athletes that represent these qualities.

Christian Academy Schools Athletic Boosters

The purpose of the CAS Athletic Boosters is "to procure funding for athletic uniforms & equipment to benefit student athletes/coaches of CAS. The Boosters will accomplish this purpose as they adhere to the statements of faith, vision and mission of CAS". The Boosters will support, assist and serve CAS and its athletes. We at CAS believe that athletics are an important vehicle for the spiritual, academic, physical, emotional and social growth of our student athletes as well as our student body.
