A Year-Round Athletic Program
As organized athletics provide significant opportunities for development outside of the classroom, BCS offers a year-round sports program to students in grade 5 and higher. BCS's growing sports program includes:
High school students compete in the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools; elementary and junior high students play within the Austin Christian Athletic Association.
With so much opportunity to participate, virtually every student desiring to participate can represent the BCS Bears on the field or on the court.
Mission: The mission of the BCS Athletic Department is to lead students to love God, instilling in them a will to strive for excellence with Christian discipline and character that withstands pressure, teaching them the importance of teamwork, and showing them how to accept victory or defeat with grace and humility.
P.E. is required for all students Pre-K through 12th grade. Starting in 5th grade, atheltics can be taken instead of a general P.E. class.required
Elementary: Each student who comes out for a sport will be guaranteed a spot on a team. Players will be grouped into "AA" (higher ability) and "A" (lower ability) teams, based on the analysis of all coaches involved with that particular sport and level. Every effort will be made to get each team member playing time in each game, though playing time amounts will not be equal but rather gained according to ability. Higher emphasis will be placed on all players' development in practice and some emphasis on game development, while lower emphasis will be placed on team competitiveness.
Junior High: Each student who comes out for a sport will be guaranteed a spot on a team. Players will be grouped into "AA" (higher ability) and "A" (lower ability) teams, based on the analysis of all coaches involved with that particular sport and level. Team members will not be guaranteed playing time. Less emphasis placed on individual development in practice and games and more emphasis placed on developing team excellence and competitiveness.
High School: Students must try out for teams and are not guaranteed a spot on the team simply because they try out for the team. Those cut from the playing squad will be offered some position with the team (such as a manager, trainer, videographer, or statistician) and will be considered an equal part of the team if they choose to accept that role. Students are responsible for most individual development with a higher emphasis placed on team excellence and competitiveness.
