BEAMS Middle School Athletics

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.)

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.

BEAMS sports are open to students in the appropriate grade levels from any Twin Cities area school.

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 is now open for Fall 2024 BEAMS Football. Click here to register.

Winter Sports

Concordia Academy offers a modified traveling basketball program that operates as the Concordia Academy Basketball Association. Our boys and girls teams are available to 5th-8th grade players from all schools. The number of teams per grade level and gender will be determined by interest and numbers. Practices are typically Mondays and Thursdays starting in late October, and the season will end in late February or early March.

Registration will open in the fall.

Spring Sports

Track & Field (5th – 8th Grade Boys & Girls)
Practices are generally held on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, 5:00 – 6:30 pm, and practices are scheduled to begin on Tuesday, April 2nd. Typically, there are four track meet competitions during the season. Events will include short sprints, long-distance running, throwing, jumping, and hurdling. Parents will be responsible for transporting students to the practices and meets.
