TKA Athletics Vision
The purpose of The King's Academy is to train, prepare and equip young people to take the ministry of Jesus to the ends of the earth and athletics is an integral part of that process . TKA has an outstanding sports program, which offers our students the opportunity to learn the skills of the sport, develop teamwork and exhibit Christian sportsmanship as they play with schools in the area.
There are four basic goals of the TKA Athletic Department:
- Develop Christ-like character in each athlete. (Galatians 5:22)
- Be an effective witness of the transforming power of Jesus Christ. (Matthew 5:16)
- Fully develop the athletic abilities of each athlete. (Colossians 3:17; II Timothy 2:5)
- Develop and maintain good relationships with other schools and coaches. (I Timothy 3:7)
The King's Academy Lions are members of the SCISA Athletic Class AA League.
Every student's health and immunization record needs to be current and on file at the school. To participate in any team sport both a SCISA pre-participation health assessment signed by a parent, and a SCISA medical examination form completed and signed by a physician must be turned in before the first practice. Click here for a copy of the SCISA medical exam form.
The divisions for all students participating in athletics at TKA are based on participation.
