Athletics is a great opportunity for young people to learn teamwork and a strong work ethic. Athletics is also a good microcosm of life that places young people in a controlled environment where students can be taught to respond correctly and with self-control. At Canaan Christian Academy, students are taught proper skills and rules for playing each sport, but more importantly students are taught to do everything for the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31 states "whether therefore ye eat or drink or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God." We stress that students are able to prepare themselves and play sports for the honor and glory of God.
At Canaan Christian Academy, both boys and girls (grades 7-12) have the opportunity to play soccer in the fall and basketball through the winter (December through first week of March). The soccer season generally starts two weeks before the beginning of school, and basketball practice begins in November, one week after the soccer season ends.
Canaan Christian Academy is a member of the NYPENN athletic league which combines Christian schools through athletics to play for a championship and sportsmanship with the emphasis on Christian values. CCA is also a member of the Keystone Christian Education Association (KCEA) where our young people may play for state championships among Christian schools in Pennsylvania.
