CCA Athletics Update

By: Keith Huisman
First and foremost, my heart goes out to our spring athletes and coaches. While we all understand the uniqueness of this situation, we feel for those who are not able to pursue their passions. I also feel for the families and fans who no longer have the opportunity to connect with the CCA community at games. We have grown accustomed to the disruptions caused by hurricanes, but this is entirely different.


Coaches, athletes, and Calvary fans alike are watching as the days tick by with no promise as to when they will be able to return to the sports they love. Coaches and athletic directors are brainstorming dozens of scenarios by which spring athletes have some semblance of a competitive season, but formal plans cannot be released until the future is a bit more clear.
We have grown accustomed to the disruptions caused by hurricanes, but this is entirely different.
In its press release on March 31, the Florida High School Athletic Association indicated they were exploring possible remedies to all areas of high school sports impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, including extending the spring seasons through June 30 and even offering additional eligibility for spring athletes. No decisions have been made, but the discussions continue. The last home game of CCA’s spring season took place on March 12 when the boys varsity lacrosse team hosted Palm Beach Central High School and handed the Broncos a 16-6 drubbing.

In an effort to recognize and highlight our Eagles while remaining in our homes, CCA will be hosting weekly watch parties that will allow us to connect digitally around sports. Recordings of previous games will air every Thursday night at 8:00 PM for the foreseeable future on the CCA Athletics Facebook page.
. . . we can still remain thankful for the blessings we do have — with the biggest blessing of all being our salvation in Jesus Christ.
This Thursday, April 9, we’ll be watching our varsity girls lacrosse team take on the NSU University School Sharks. We hope you’ll join us online! Be sure to follow our Athletics Instagram page where we will also be celebrating the accomplishments of our CCA student-athletes.

I will continue to keep you and your family in my prayers. Although this time has been disappointing and challenging for many of us, we can still remain thankful for the blessings we do have — with the biggest blessing of all being our salvation in Jesus Christ.
