Message from the Athletic Director

CAK's Athletics Department is comprised of God-gifted coaches and parents dedicated to helping our student-athletes achieve their full potential physically, academically, spiritually, and emotionally.   

While we work hard to field the most competitive teams possible and continuously enhance our athletics facilities, our foremost goal is to create an environment for spiritual growth. Our coaches strive to develop mentoring relationships with our athletes and to teach our athletes how to respect their opponents with a character that reflects Jesus’ love. 
Our coaches are committed to pursuing excellence, making your student-athletes feel loved and that their contributions to the team are valued.
