Beacon Buddies offers a variety of athletic camp options on Saturday mornings for our youngest future Beacons in 1st-4th grade. (CA also offers a BEAMS Athletics program for middle school students.)
Opportunities in 2022-2023 included soccer and basketball for girls and boys. Beacon Buddies is led by CA coaches, alumni, and our own student-athletes. These Christian coaches and mentors help participants develop athletic interests, improve fundamental athletic skills, make friends, and build community.
At Concordia Academy, we believe that discipline, teamwork, commitment, victory, and even defeat can provide rich opportunities to cultivate strong character in athletes. Our coaches are committed to this cultivation of character. This commitment is equaled only by the commitment to fully develop the athletic talents of each of our athletes. We believe that excellence in athletics honors God and blesses athletes.
Our Beacon Buddies registration system uses the same platform as our summer camps program, meaning you can use your existing login information if you have registered for CA Camps before.
Registration for Beacon Buddies Soccer is now open. Registration for Beacon Buddies Basketball will open later this fall.
