ACS has a long history of achievement in athletics, locally and provincially. Our goal is to use athletics as a method of implementing our vision to engage the mind, nurture the heart, and shape God’s world. We do this with a broad and intentional athletic program, which integrates our competitive goals with our Christian worldview. Everyone has a role to play on a team. We teach our athletes how to play for a team. The motto above our gym doors says,
“Many Parts. One Body.
Many Players. One Team.”
Each human being is created by God to praise and serve Him. The whole person is called to be an instrument of service to God and others. Through our athletic program, athletes learn character development, leadership skills, athletic skills, team-work, humility, service, courage, responsibility, and cooperation. Our teams play hard, play smart, and play together.
We have found that this focus also leads to success in competition. The Knights have won five provincial banners in basketball and volleyball and one provincial banner in track & field. They have captured 33 Fraser Valley Championships in basketball, cross country, golf, track & field, and volleyball and have won six individual Provincial gold medals in track & field. Along with a competitive spirit we have run our programs to be inclusive: 40% of the secondary school student body participates in extracurricular sports and our grade 8-12 track and field team regularly has 75+ members.
