Athletics

PHILOSOPHY

BCS values athletics as an important part of a child's physical, emotional, and social development. All of our coaches view themselves as teachers and mentors, modeling and encouraging Christ-like behavior both on and off the field.  We encourage kids to play hard and play fair, show respect to coaches, each other, and opponents, work as a team, and have fun.

All students participate in P.E. classes during the day.  Athletic teams are open to 5th through 8th graders, with some sports including 4th graders, per the coach's discretion.  Additionally, after-school activities are available for lower elementary students throughout the year.  BCS is part of the Foothill Sports League, a competitive league comprised of other private schools in the San Gabriel Valley. Current schedules and information can be found at www.foothillsports.net 

Participation in the athletic program is dependent upon a student's academic record and citizenship. The Athletic Director stays in close contact with teachers to ensure that Athletics enhances, rather than detracts, from academic performance.
 
Playtime is determined by each coach, with the goal that all students will play in most games. Playtime is dependent not only upon performance and ability, but citizenship, attitude during practices, and academic standing.  While the Lions love to win, the greater goal is helping each player develop as an athlete and a team player and to enjoy the season.
