7-8 Athletics

Jr. High Boy's Basketball

Participation in jr. high sports is a fun and rewarding experience to students at New Covenant Academy.  Similar to the high school athletic program, students are challenged to uphold the Warrior Code of Ethics in competition, maintain a Godly character; while at the same time developing skill sets that lead to that competitive edge needed to win games.  The coaching staff work to instruct and mentor their students towards a strong sense of team work, camaraderie, commitment and responsibility.  In addition they hone in on building foundational technical skills in each sport via drills, practice, strength training, endurance and on the instruction for critical analysis and strategy needed to understand the sport  and what it takes to win. 

Skill development, sportsmanship and team philosophy are important goals at this level and are therefore the focus point of the NCA Jr. High School Athletic Program. There is no "try-out" phase; all eligible students will be provided an opportunity to participate.   Playing time is guaranteed to all eligible team members during each contest, but not equally.

Jr. High Sport Competitors:   Springfield R12 district middle schools, Chadwick Jr. High, Everton Jr. High, Greenwood Jr. High, Kirbyville Jr. High and Niangua Jr. High.
