Mesaage From the AD
Welcome to HCA athletics. We are thankful that you have visited our website. Hickory Christian Academy is dedicated to the overall growth our student athletes. This includes the physical, mental, and Spiritual growth of each participant in the sports program. Competitive athletics at HCA are an integral part of the school’s total educational program.
The purpose of the athletic program is to develop endurance, strength, coordination, self-confidence, self-discipline and team work as well as to develop recreational habits and skills that will be of value in later life. The athletic department is structured to work in conjunction with the academic disciplines so that when we say that education does not stop as the students walk out the door, we are speaking to the numerous opportunities that athletes have to develop leadership, loyalty, team chemistry, and the many other lessons that are learned on the field of play.
We are unapologetically Christian in our approach and beliefs. A Christian response to competitive play is “focused competition which encourages the athlete to be an expressive player in celebration to the Lord, to give God thanks for the gift of play, to play intensely, to pursue excellence and test the limits of abilities, and to develop and act with Christian commitments”.
The prevailing attitude among all those connected with the sports program at HCA should be – . Such an attitude will mold and shape Christian character from the inside to the outside. Thank you for supporting Hickory Christian Athletics.
