Welcome to the Ridge Christian Academy Athletics page!
Here At RCA…
Athletics are a valuable extension of the learning process. Our primary concern is the character of our athletes and that all participants are a positive representation of Christ and our school. The athletic program is to give a student the opportunity to develop physically and participate in a healthy and safe program. Also, we wish to promote team spirit, cooperation, self-discipline, and responsibility. We believe it is important to involve students in after school activities that will teach discipline and team work. Come join us on this mission!!!
