Here’s a look at all that’s going on in the SBCA Athletic Department this month. Thank you to all of our parents who faithfully bring their children to practices and games and volunteer their time. We’re truly blessed to have such a supportive SBCA family.
Our Lady Knights have been building their volleyball program from scratch and are committed to being in the final four in their conference. They have improved every game and are continuing to work in the offseason. Although the team suffered a number of injuries, our younger players stepped up to finish our season strong. This season showed just how talented our Lady Knights really are. A few of the middle school girls even earned conference recognition from the Panhandle Christian Conference (PCC).
All-Conference (CMSAA): Annah Powell
PCC Varsity All-Conference: Natalee Gulledge
Some of our girls have made Pleasure Island Storm Volleyball travel teams and will be continuing to develop their skills at the next level!

Practices for the 6U and 8U men’s basketball teams started the third week of November in the afternoons. Our youth games are tentatively scheduled to be played at the David L. Bodenhamer Recreation Center in Gulf Shores, AL. Games will begin prior to Christmas Break and end in February. Our youth cheer squad will be made up of 14 young ladies.
Under the direction of Madelynn Coleman, eleven Varsity Cheerleaders support our 2020-2021 basketball program and help spread joy on the court. These young ladies are assisted by Peyton Deese and Michael Griffiths who have volunteered to become the mascot. Our cheerleaders are:
|Abby Boehm ***Co-Captain***||Lily Wright *** Co-Captain***||Makayla Peyer|
|Jessie Young||Jasmine Nguyen||Makayla Bair|
|Megan Rogers||Natalee Gulledge||Emma Harrod|

Our Archery classes will begin on January 15, 2021, from 3:00 p.m. – 4:15 p.m. and continue weekly until the last Friday in February. We are hosting an end of the year tournament at a date to be determined to highlight our top 3 Archers in the younger and older divisions. Please come out and be a part of our Archery classes.
SBCA is interested in developing both Golf and Tennis teams in the near future. If you are interested in participating, please contact us and encourages anyone with these skills to contact us! We look forward to hearing from you.
