The purpose and intent of our sports programs at WCA is to bring glory to God through participation and involvement in athletics. Our goal is to develop, within those who participate, the character traits of Jesus Christ; producing positive Christian men and women who honor the Lord both on and off the playing field.
WCA believes that the condition of the heart comes before the score of the game. When winning is kept in the right perspective, our student athletes are allowed to develop without the fear of failure.
The sports listed below are offered at WCA for grades 5-8. WCA is in the process of developing a high school sports program for the 2022-23 school year.

Monday, Aug 2 – Tuesday, Aug 17
Morning Practices M-F 8:30-9:30 AM @ The Wolf Picnic Area in Bay Village
NOTES: Runners should bring a water bottle to practice. Wear socks. Running shoes required (they don’t have to be expensive ones/kohl’s and the dicks outlet store on Great Northern Blvd are good places to look). Bug spray a very good idea.
IMPORTANT: Runners should come ready to run 10 minutes without stopping to the first practice. Start small and work up. Begin with a 5 minute run and add a minute each day. Speed is not an issue. Here is a great link to help with distance and running routes in your neighborhood. It is mentally easier when you know where you are going and where the finish line is! mapometer
RETURNING RUNNERS: Come ready to run 2 miles without stopping (approx. 15 minutes). Speed not an issue.

HEARTS for Jesus Christ is a Home School Organization which we often partner with for sport teams. From time to time either school, HEARTS or WCA, may not have enough athletes to field a team on their own, at which point we combine forces. Depending on the sport and coaches, the team my dress under WCA or HEARTS colors. These decisions are made season to season.
At this time WCA is unable to field HS OHSAA sanctioned teams. HEARTS for Jesus Christ is a Home School Organization which we often partner with for sport teams. HEARTS is OHSAA certified and invites WCA athletes to join their teams.
