Lions Athletic Program

Our goal is to impact the lives of young student-athletes in a positive way by demonstrating and teaching Christ-like character on and off the court. We hope to instill confidence within these young athletes and help them understand the importance of showing good character in all situations. We strive to do all this while teaching fundamental skills of the sport to young athletes and preparing them for the next level of competition.

Lions Volleyball Program

Lions Volleyball Program

WCA offers a volleyball program for our students as well as our local homeschool students in the 4th - 12th grades. Until recently we have only had a league for middle/high school girls. However, in 2023 we are expanding our program to include younger grades and a boys’ league. More on all our program has to offer below...

Little Cubs Program

(Boys & Girls 4th - 6th grade)

We believe in the value of training our students young and are excited to provide an opportunity for our 4th - 6th grade girls AND boys to have practice and game time experience. We recently wrapped up our first season in March 2023.  Look for info on our next season in the winter of 2023/2024.  Our next event for 5th-6th graders is a summer camp in June.  See Volleyball Camp on this page to learn more.

This camp will be run by Cedarville University's head girls volleyball coach and his team.  The camp will run 4 consecutive days, Mon - Thurs.  We feel like this is an incredible opportunity for our boys and girls to get some training from college coaches and also open doors to learn more of what to expect should they want to take their passion for volleyball further.
