School Life



The Calvary Christian School Athletic Program seeks to provide a safe and active environment where students have the privilege of participating in a sport, while at the same time representing their school. The Athletic Program strives to integrate the school’s mission statement by "developing Christian values through athletics." The Athletics Program is designed to teach our students that victory is accomplished through fair play and good sportsmanship, reinforcing the core values of love, humility, integrity, and faith. We look forward to the opportunity to work with your child to develop his or her athletic and leadership skills as we build your child’s confidence for all future endeavors.

Program Philosophy


Calvary is committed to building cohesive teams and devloping excellent athletes. Commitment to the team is important and every player is required to participate in all games and practices. Every student athlete and his or her parents will be required to sign a "Contract to Participate" prior to each athletic season. 

Playing Time

Athletes in 5th and 6th grade are guaranteed playing time in every game. Athletes in 7th and 8th grade will be a part of the team but may not play in every game. Playing time for 7th and 8th grade teams will be given at the discretion of the coaches.


Student athletes must maintain a C- across all subjects in order to be eligible to compete. If a grade falls below a C-, the athlete will be put on academic probation for a week. Generally, grade checks will be conducted at the end of the week. If the grade sheet indicates that a student athlete on probation has improved his or her grade to a C- or above, he or she will be reinstated on the team. If any student athlete is on academic probation for more than two weeks during the season, he or she will be removed from the team.


Calvary fields, on average, 20 teams each school year in the sports of basketball, volleyball, flag football, soccer, track and field, golf, and cross-country. Each team competes in one of three leagues in which Calvary holds membership.  These organizations include the Coastal Canyon League for elementary sports and the Pacific Basin League and Delphic League for middle school sports.

Calvary Sports Highlights

Though the 2021-22 year had its ups and downs due to COVID, we managed to have a great year in sports!
  • Our 6th-8th Grade Golf team won the Pacific Basin League Golf championship. 
  • Our 7th Grade Boys' Volleyball team went undefeated in the regular season in the Pacific Basin League and made it all the way to the Pacific Basin League Semi-Finals of the playoffs.
  • We launched our 6th-8th Grade Girls Beach Volleyball program this year.  The girls had a great time sharpening their skills and practicing on the beach in preparation for our league's first full beach volleyball season next spring.
