Athletics at Nanaimo Christian School is building to a whole new level of excitement and participation. The Trail Blazers are not only learning new skills and building character through sports, they are representing NCS in the city of Nanaimo through competitive play and great sportsmanship. We are proud of the accomplishments of all of our athletes and know that God has been glorified on and off the court and field.
There has been a lot of excitement during the 2016-17 school year at NCS. At middle school our volleyball, football and basketball teams had a lot of fun playing the other schools around Nanaimo and the Peewee (grade 6) boys basketball team had an undefeated season. There was also the opportunity for us to participate in the island independent schools one day tournaments which included basketball, floor hockey, volleyball, badminton and other sports.
In the high school we had two provincial opportunities with our swim relay team earning a spot in provincials and a gymnast from our school finished 10th at provincials. Our Senior Girls Volleyball team is continuing to be a force on the court by forcing a wildcard playoff in Surrey to play for a spot at provincials, while they finished third on the island we are excited to see what they will accomplish in 2017-18. We continued with a repeat of 2015-16 with our Senior Boys basketball team finishing 1st in the North Island and narrowly missing provincials by finishing 3rd at the Island Championships.
As we continue to grow, it is our goal to provide opportunities for all students who are interested to be able to play. This means additional teams, coaches, and gym time are needed. Below is a chart of what we are expecting for the 2017-18 school year and the highlighted teams are in need of coaches. Please consider getting involved and leading one of these teams, we can’t pay you but we know that the reward of getting to know each of these athletes will be plenty.
