CCPS offers a wide variety of sports for boys and girls at all age levels throughout each season of the school year. Our athletics program currently includes JV volleyball, JV basketball, JV cross country, JV cheerleading, pep squad, archery, and tennis. All eligible students are encouraged to be a part of our Athletics Program, and ages vary based on the sport. Our coaches teach the fundamentals of their sport, encourage leadership, strong competition, sportsmanship, respect and a love for the Lord. In the classroom, our teachers strive to support these Scholar Athletes as they teach to and develop the whole child.

While the ultimate goal of athletic competition may appear to be victory, at Coastal Christian we feel that the development of character is much more significant. These character-building traits include cooperation, team-building, supporting othersfair play, sportsmanship, and strong work ethic. With the CCPS athletics program, players are committed to acquiring strong character, in addition to acquiring strong skill.

Winning traditions are byproducts of a solid foundation. This foundation is built upon the concepts of listening to directions, communicating with others, hard work, school pride, respect of one’s self and of others, perseverance, character in action, and loyalty to the spirit of the game and one’s teammates. 

As a private school, our coaches, athletes, and parents alike must strive to ensure that our athletic teams represent themselves in a manner that is conducive to competitive spirit, good sportsmanship, and Christian values.

We have a wide array of sports that our students can be involved in during their time at Coastal. If your student wants to be involved in competitive sports, there is a place for him or her at CCPS! We also have ways for the non-athletes to be a part of the team: team managers, scorekeepers and assistants are always needed! These essential members still develop comraderie with teammates and can develop skills in a non-competitive environment.

If you don’t see the sport your child loves posted above, let us know! Based on student interest and coach availablility, we are always evaluating how to expand our program!

Please contact our Athletic Director for further information regarding schedules, teams, or ways to support our student-athletes.
