Overview of Athletics.

 

WINNING CHAMPIONSHIPS IS JUST ONE COMPONENT OF THE ATHLETIC EXPERIENCE AT BCA.

“But Jesus looked at them and said, “with man this is impossible, but with God ALL things are possible.” Matthew 19:26

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13

Our mission at BCA is to utilize athletics as a unique educational tool that will glorify God, while developing Biblical character qualities, as we equip student athletes to know, grow and go. We believe athletics to be an integral part of development teaching many essential christian values.  We hope to train all students so that they will achieve victory forever – on the field, in life, and for eternity.

As a participant in the North Atlanta Metro League ( NAML ), Bridgeway offers a competitive athletics program that challenges our athletes to perform to the best of their physical and athletic abilities while honoring God, both in and out of the sports arena.

Teaching the student athletes how to deal with adversity and sportsmanship gives them the opportunity to learn life lessons and build godly character as they grow and mature in their lives and their faith. Our athletes train under the leadership and mentoring of dedicated godly coaches who support this philosophy along with the mission of BCA.  We recognize the important role a coach can play in the life of young athletes and our coaches demonstrate the highest standard of Christian principles and sportsmanship at all times.

Bridgeway students in grades fifth through eighth are eligible to play for the BCA Lions.  In addition, fourth graders are also eligible to participate in certain sports.
