We adhere to two principles. The first is to build faith and character in each athlete. Secondarily, we help each athlete and team become the best they can be.
Competitive athletics begin in 6th grade and continue through 12th grade. Sarasota Christian is a member of the FHSAA (Florida High School Athletic Association) and competes in class 2A. SCS frequently ranks in the top of its class and has won the FHSAA Floyd E. Lay Sunshine Cup multiple years. SCS is also a member of the SSAA (Sunshine State Athletic Association.)

Our goal is to be transformational in the lives of our athletes with a long-term perspective that is concerned about what kind of men and women our athletes become in life. I am excited to lead a great group of more than 25 coaches who are committed to their faith and to making a difference for the Kingdom through athletics. Our coaches are future focused and coach out of love, not fear or punishment. They are committed to building great teams that produce lifelong relationships. They are committed to being excellent in the X’s and O’s but more importantly they are passionate about discipleship in the lives of our athletes.
The clearance process for students to be eligible to paly athletics at SCS is done through an online portal called Athletic Clearance. For your son or daughter to participate in athletics they are required by the FHSAA to have a physical and complete three online courses through the NFHS every year. This information will be uploaded through Athletic Clearance prior to participation in practices or games. The required forms are the EL2 and EL3 forms for the FHSAA and we also participate in the Sunshine State Athletic Association (SSAA) which requires the CRF-1A Form. All forms can be downloaded through Athletic Clearance. Student athletes and parents are required to read the Athletic Handbook each year. This is also done through Athletic Clearance.
The EL2 form can be located both within the Athletic Clearance app and by clicking here..
