Go Trail Blazers!

Thanks to a new double gymnasium and a strong athletics program, Nanaimo Christian School is building a whole new level of excitement. During the 2021-2022 school year we were able to send seven teams to provincials! These teams included: Sr Boys and Girls Volleyball, eSports, Sr Boys and Girls Basketball, Mountain Biking and Cross Country. 


NCS Trail Blazers are not only learning new skills and building character through sports, they are also representing NCS in Nanaimo and across the province through competitive play and great sportsmanship.
