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.

Each player will receive a t-shirt and be part of a team that will have 2 high school volleyball players as their coaches. We will have 4 teams. A few parents will escort WCA students from the school to the hangar. Students will be walking down the road and crossing the street. Please pick your students up at 4:30 at the hangar. Student athletes need to be dressed and in gym shorts and a t-shirt with tennis shoes. Knee pads are not required but may be worn. Please do not feel the need to purchase knee pads or volleyball shoes. Please bring a water bottle, as well. In the month of February, each team will practice and learn the game and skills for the entire hour. In March, teams will practice for the first 30-40 minutes, and then scrimmage another team at the gym. On our final afternoon, Thursday March 21, we will have a tournament.

Registration for boys volleyball can be accessed with the link above. We will be starting volleyball on Feb 12 at the hanger. If you were not involved with basketball, you will need to fill out documents which can be accessed online or picked up on the elementary in a file holder by my dropbox, next to the principal's office starting 2/2/24. The registration will open communication on this current platform. I am working with the technology department to place this on all school platforms. Questions can be emailed to me. My typical contact/ availability is Monday- Friday, 12-4 as I am a part time employee for WCA.
