3-6th Grade basketball

Boys and girls basketball teams are organized for students in 3rd through 6th grades. Registration for these sports activities takes place each fall after school starts, and practices begin in September. Each student is responsible for paying a sign-up fee and for taking care of the uniform they will check out. Players also receive a t-shirt as part of their registration fee. Practices are held 1-3 days per week, and games are organized against other schools in the area. The program changes a bit from year to year, but the primary goal is to give students an opportunity to build fundamental skills, make memories, experience game time, and learn from the team sport. Our current coaches are Ethan and Ashlie Thomas, assisted by Scott Beahm and student team managers.


4-8th Grade Cheer

Students in 4th through 8th grades are invited to participate in our cheerleading team. Cheerleaders are responsible for team spirit during basketball games, as well as performing special half-time shows. Cheerleading is occasionally opened up to younger grades for special clinics and camps. Sign-up for the cheerleading team happens in the spring for the following school year. Each student is responsible for paying a sign-up fee and for taking care of the uniform they will check out. Cheerleaders also receive a t-shirt as part of their registration fee. Practices are held 1-2 days per week. The program changes a bit from year to year, but the primary goal is to give students an opportunity to build fundamental skills, make memories, and learn from the team sport. Our current head coach is Brandi Allen.

7-8th Grade Partnership

CKCA has a sports agreement with Hoisington Middle School for 7th and 8th grade students, allowing them the opportunity to stay in a positive, Christian environment for academics while still having the option to participate in a variety of sports! For the upcoming school year, CKCA intends to offer transportation services from CKCA to Hoisington Middle School for daily practices. With eligible grades, our 7th and 8th grade students can participate in football, basketball, volleyball, tennis, track, baseball, or softball. 

We believe that sports are an important part of our children's lives and can be a way to glorify God through our athletic gifts. Sports help develop many skills that carry over into adulthood. Help us build the future of CKCA by giving your child two additional years of CKCA's top-notch education while still getting the extra curricular experiences pre-teens crave. Please feel free to contact the school office with any questions: 620-792-3477.

CKCA has a fun and important volunteer group called Booster Club that is responsible for raising school spirit in conjunction with sporting events and other school activities.

These roles can vary between working the concession stand, hanging posters around the school, decorating the gym before games, surprising students with locker decorations, or other school spirit building activities.
