Crusader Athletics seeks to be the premier athletic program in South Florida that develops well-rounded athletes in a variety of sports; teaches young men and women to glorify God, attain their goals, and maximize their talents; creates a community of supporters inside and outside of the school body; and fosters a growth mindset among coaches, players, and supporters.

Athletic Director

On behalf of Coral Springs Christian Academy, welcome to Crusader Athletics.

Our vision at CSCA is one in which our student-athletes are led by godly men and women to compete at the highest level, glorifying and honoring God in everything they do, not only on the playing field, but also in the classroom and in the community.  We believe that athletics offer opportunities for young men and women to learn impactful lessons that will affect them throughout their lives, and to build lasting relationships.  Great coaches capitalize on the opportunities presented in athletics to assist parents in instilling a Bible-centered understanding of competition and leadership.

We seek not just for one team to succeed, but for every program within CSCA to be successful.  Our players, coaches, and fans should take pride in CSCA athletics as a whole, and while different programs will be successful at different levels and times, the whole of our program should not be defined by one or two programs’ successes or failures.

We hope that this website will provide you with all the necessary information to support and participate in Crusader Athletics.  If you have interests in volunteering, or in joining our Crusader Athletic Boosters, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Athletic Packet / Philosophy & Policies

As we gear up for the 2016-2017 school year, we are also rapidly approaching the start of our fall athletic season.  Several of our teams will begin practicing on August 1st and will be hard at work preparing for their first games of the year.   As a staff, we could not be more excited to help our athletes accomplish great things on and off the field of competition.  The link below contains the compete Athletics Information Packet for the 2016-2017 school year.  If your son or daughter has any interest in playing for a CSCA team this year, please take the time now to read through this informative packet.  All necessary forms are included in this packet, and several must be signed and returned before your son or daughter can begin competing with his or her team.  Also included is an overview of some of our key policies.  As always, more information is available and is constantly being updated on the Athletics page at coralspringschristianacademy.com.  Thank you for all of your support as we kick off a new year in Crusader Athletics!


Andy Holz
Athletic Director

Students, parents, coaches, and fans are to demonstrate Christian principles in all circumstances. It is expected that everyone associated with CSCA team sports will support and encourage our players as well as one another.
Our athletes are expected to try to play their very best with an appropriate Christian attitude at all times. They are expected to behave properly 
at school, at home, and on the playing field. They are expected to excel academically and spiritually as well as athletically. They are expected to be champions for Christ and positive role models.
All student athletes are expected to meet and, whenever possible, exceed the Standards for Excellence at CSCA. Parents and fans are expected to properly support and 
encourage all of our players and treat the other teams and officials with respect and dignity. Players, Parents, and Fans will be humble in victory and gracious in defeat. 

Any consequences for failing to meet these expectations will be determined by the CSCA Athletic Director and the Head Coach.

Coaches are expected to use each player’s gifts to allow the individual 
and the team to compete at the highest level. Our younger age teams will focus on fun, with playing time for all being evenly distributed. As the players move up, the competition will increase accordingly. Some players will start, others will be subs, and some 
may receive very little playing time. At the Varsity level, all parents and fans will support the philosophy that our best players will play. It is our belief that all games should be played to win with integrity, through a Christ-honoring approach.

All teams shall have a designated try-out period to be determined by the Head Coach. Players will be selected based on attitude, grades, “coach-ability”, and talent.
The number of players on a team will be large enough to have a strong competitive team, but not too large to deter from the individual attention each player deserves when playing on a school team. We do not want to “cut” anyone from a team; however, our coaches will choose those most qualified to represent the school in the particular activity.
CSCA is subject to FHSAA regulations regarding when teams can begin practice and/or begin playing games. Due to the nature of the FHSAA calendar, there will be an overlap between the FALL and WINTER seasons, and the WINTER and SPRING seasons. This overlap of seasons cannot be avoided. Therefore, for those who play more than one sport in consecutive seasons, please be aware of this challenge.
Students who are members of a fall sport team will be given permission to tryout for a winter team on a date that will be worked out between the two coaches.
Likewise, students who are members of a winter sport team will be given permission to tryout for a spring team on a date that will be worked out between the two coaches.
CSCA will follow the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) rule requiring students to maintain a 2.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA). Each student’s GPA will be checked at the end of each semester.

In order for a student to be eligible to participate in a school-sponsored event (practice, game, or other event), the student must not be unexcused from school, nor more than one hour late to school on the day of a practice, event, or game,

A student who is suspended from school may not participate in any practice/game during the time frame of the suspension. The Athletic Director will determine all other issues of ineligibility.

Any student athlete who quits a team after being named a member of that team will be ineligible to participate in the next season or sport.

The coach will distribute school team uniforms in the beginning of the season. It is the responsibility of the player to take proper care of the uniform and have it ready for games. Each coach will determine what is to be worn to school on game days. We expect student athletes to be in full compliance with the CSCA dress code at all times. All school team uniforms must be cleaned and returned at the end of the season. Lost or damaged uniforms are the responsibility of the player/parent.

As a Crusader Athlete, I will commit to:
Exemplary Christian Behavior.
  • Being a positive member of CSCA.
  • Practicing hard & playing fair.
  • Attend practices & games.
Fully support my teammates.
  • Fully support my coaches.
  • Fully using my God given talents.
Ephesians 6:11 
“Put on the whole armor of God, 
that you may be able to stand 
against the schemes of the devil.”

You will be a Spiritual Guide and mentor to our younger cheerleaders and an active participant in all Cheerleading Fundraising and Social events.  You are expected to manage your time well so not to neglect your spiritual and academic growth as they are fundamental aspects of being a dynamic CSCA Cheerleader. “Leadership is based on Spiritual quality; the power to inspire, the power to inspire others to follow.”

The CSCA Cheerleading tryouts are broken down by Upper and Lower school.


UPPER SCHOOL TRYOUT PROCESS:  Upper School tryouts run for 4 days consisting of (3) preliminary clinics and one tryout.  During the Preliminary clinics participants will jump, stunt, tumble and learn Choreography and team Cheers & Chants and the coaches will assess the abilities, leadership skills and the potential of candidates for a position on the squads.  Actual attendance by candidates at the clinics is highly recommended as it is a big part of your overall score.  Persons who cannot attend the sessions (and have contacted a coach in advance of the session may be excused…detentions are not excused under any circumstances and will affect your overall standing).  During the clinics and Tryout, participants will start off in a practice-like setting and will be evaluated from the moment they arrive.  This procedure allows the coaches to see how the participant performs in our natural environment. On Tryout day, candidates will tryout in groups of 3 and will showcase Choreography, Cheer, Jumps and Tumbling.  Stunts will be reviewed and scored during the Practice Session.  Participants cannot tryout for Front spot, you must be able to base or backspot or be willing to learn these positions.


ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SPIRIT SQUAD EVALUATIONS:  The Lower School tryouts will be a two day tryout.  Participants will learn a chant and a jump during the two days.  This is an athletic sport so participants will be asked to run, jump, tumble, lift and hold each other during these evaluations and clinics.  Cheerleaders will be evaluated and selected in a practice like setting and will not have a formal tryout.  This allows coaches to see how the participant performs in our natural day to day environment and how comfortable they will be cheering in front of their peers.  Cuts for the elementary squad will only be made if we exceed a manageable amount of participants (16+) per coach and will be based on the participants overall evaluation scores averaged between the two days.  It is important participants come prepared and cheer ready.




Candidates wishing to tryout for a position on the CSCA Cheerleading Squads must meet the following minimum standards:


  1. Be enrolled at CSCA for the current School Year

Brendan Teeters I can honestly say that CSCA gave me an incredibly unique learning experience academically, socially, and athletically that I don’t think I could have received anywhere else.  At Coral Springs Christian, I was able to take multiple college level courses through Advanced Placement and receive college credit, putting me ahead after I graduated! The academic, rigorous yet helpful, classes helped creat lasting bonds of friendship for me among my classmates. As I was busy trying to keep up with the workload of all my courses, I was always able to connect with my fellow classmates because of the closely knit family-like atmosphere that administration helped create. The faculty not only encouraged me socially and academically but also athletically. As a year-around competitive swimmer, I was slightly worried when I first arrived at CSCA. I didn’t think that I was going to be able to get the same opportunity as many high school swimmers to compete on a school swim team because of a lack of interest in the sport. Luckily, the Athletic Director and administration helped me create a swim team for the sole purpose of me competing at the high school level. In the two years that I represented the Crusaders in the pool, I was able to compete at states back-to-back. Because of this opportunity I was recognized by the Sun-Sentinel in their annual All-County sports publication. I also was able to sign with Gardner-Webb University, a Division 1 school, for swimming and receive a Full Tuition scholarship based off of a combination of my academic and athletic achievements. As I am excited to carry on in life and enter the real world, I will always look back at CSCA with fond memories of my once-in-a-lifetime experiences and lasting friendships.

Sebastian Bolivar- Coral Springs Christian Academy was my home for the past three years of my life as a student-athlete. I made some great friendships with many students, teachers and coaches. I was able to graduate with an Honors Diploma and received credit for 3 college courses by taking AP Classes. Playing Varsity Soccer at CSCA was definitely an experience that I cherish and will remember for the rest of my life. Being captain of the team my junior and senior year and helping the younger players on the team develop their skills as well as their passion for this sport was a true honor and fulfilling experience. While playing for CSCA, I received All-Conference Honors my junior and senior year, along with two of my teammates Eliot Gray and Josh Palhano. In the middle of our season, I was also recruited and received a max-offer scholarship from Dodge City Community College in Kansas to be able to continue playing at the next level which I accepted. Coach Linton and Coach Hines helped not only myself but every single one of my teammates, sometimes working with each player individually during practice, to better our footwork, endurance, and soccer IQ. Our team was encouraged to run track and cross country in the offseason to better the fitness of each individual and has a summer training camp program to better each player’s skills for the upcoming season. Our coaches are extremely dedicated to our players and that is what makes the Varsity Soccer team a family.

Julia Lindbergh- Attending Coral Springs Christian Academy has blessed me in many aspects; however, sports has been very close to my heart. Starting in elementary school I played all different sports but volleyball always stuck out to me. Now as I move on to play in college I am so thankful for all of the long hours coaches put in with me to push me to be the best I could, the dedicated fans that showed up to every game, and the amazing parents and staff that never let you down when you needed something. Playing volleyball at CSCA has taught me so many lessons that make me excited to go to this next phase in my life because I feel very prepared. On my signing day I looked around and was so thankful for all of the people there who helped me arrive at that point. Playing CSCA volleyball has been an unforgettable memory with numerous great lessons on and off the court
