A Note From The Athletic Director:

Welcome to Athletics at CSCA

I would like to welcome you on behalf of the athletic department at Coral Springs Christian Academy. We strive to provide a Christ-centered, competitive atmosphere where success is defined as doing your best for the good of the team. We believe extracurricular activities are a privilege and that student athletes should be held to a high standard. Sportsmanship, selflessness, and service to others are values that are stressed at every level of athletics at CSCA. We offer 14 varsity level sports, as well as, junior varsity and middle school level sports. Our athletic program is fortunate to have enjoyed a tremendous amount of success in a short period of time as ten of the fourteen varsity sports have won at least one individual or team district championship. We are excited to see what the Lord has in store for CSCA athletics in the future.


In His service,

Steve Fitzgerald

Athletic Director
