Starting in fall of 2021, our newest athletic program focuses on developing future Beacons! 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. Click here for details.)
Opportunities in 2022-2023 include 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 interest, 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.

Beacon Buddies Soccer
September 10 – October 15, 2022
Designed for beginning soccer players, CA’s Beacon Buddies soccer program matches players according to their age and ability, with emphasis placed on the positive mental attitude necessary in performing soccer-specific skills. Instruction covers multiple topics and stresses techniques over tactics, including dribbling and foot skills, passing, shooting, and trapping. Proper athletic clothes should be worn; shin pads will be mandatory. Boys and girls should bring a soccer ball and water each day. An exhibition scrimmage between players will take place on the final Saturday, followed by treats for all players and community building for all parents! Cost: $75. Click here to register.
Beacon Buddies Basketball
January 7 – February 18, 2023
This camp focuses on fundamental skill building, teamwork, and sportsmanship. CA coaches and players offer instruction and encouragement while building confidence. Boys and girls can expect a fun, supportive environment as they learn the game and skills of basketball and develop their abilities. The camp will conclude with an opportunity to perform at halftime of a CA high school basketball game, letting students show off drills and skill work they have learned. There will also be treats for all participants! Note: The camp will take one Saturday off (date TBA), meaning the camp will meet six times over a seven-week period. Cost: $75. Click here to register.
