BEAMS Athletics Logo

Concordia Academy is excited to be offering a BEAMS Athletics program for middle school students. BEAMS stands for Beacon Elementary And Middle School, and the program is designed to offer these students opportunities for athletic growth and competition that will complement…not replace…the sports offerings at their current schools.

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.

 
WINTER SPORTS
The following COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place for BEAMS basketball this year.

Basketball
In 2014, CA developed a traveling basketball program that operates as the Concordia Academy Basketball Association.  This has been recognized by the MYAS (MN Youth Athletic Services).  We have made adjustments to our programming recently and our teams are available to all players from all schools.  All students are welcome.  The number of teams per grade levels and per gender will be determined by interest and numbers.  Practices are Mondays and Thursdays starting in late October and the season will end with our end of season tournament in late February.
