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. (CA also offers a Beacon Buddies athletic program for 1st-4th graders. Click here for details.)

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 BEAMS 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 opens on May 6 for the 2022-2023 BEAMS Athletics offerings. Click here to register.

 
FALL SPORTS

Dance (5th - 8th Grade Girls)
Girls participating on the BEAMS Dance Teams will learn the basics of dance skills and choreography and perform twice at events such as halftime of a Friday night home football game for the Beacons' varsity team. The team will begin practicing in mid-September, and the season runs through mid-October. There are typically two practices per week. This program will be under the direction of the high school coaching staff. Cost: $75. Click here to register.

 

WINTER SPORTS
 
Basketball
In 2014, CA developed a traveling basketball program that operates as the Concordia Academy Basketball Association and has been recognized by the MYAS (MN Youth Athletic Services).  Our teams are available to all players from all schools.  The number of teams per grade level and per gender will be determined by interest and numbers.  Practices are typically Mondays and Thursdays starting in late October and the season will end in early March.
