ANCS students in grades 6-8 may participate in school athletics through ANCS’s involvement in the LukeSports program, an inter-charter school league (students in fifth grade in the elementary campus may participate in certain sports, such as soccer) and other area leagues. This program includes co-educational flag football and soccer, girl’s basketball and boy’s basketball, and cheerleading. ANCS also fields a baseball team. Each sport is focused on a commitment to age-appropriate coaching and competition, individual and team goals, fair and healthy play, and respect for participants and the sport itself.
Participating students must provide ANCS with a current copy of a sports physical from their physician and pay an athletics fee prior to beginning practice. Students will remain eligible to participate in the athletics program provided they have no major discipline infractions and are making satisfactory academic progress. If a student misses school on the day of a game, he or she will not be able to play in the game. ANCS team uniforms are provided as a part of the athletics fee.
ANCS uses school staff and/or parent volunteers to serve as coaches for each team. As well, parent volunteers are often needed for different activities. For more information, please contact the school’s athletics coordinator, Kerrie Hall or visit the Athletics Department Blog.
