“A GOOD coach can change a game.  A GREAT coach can change a life”

John Wooden

Chapelgate athletics is full of opportunity and promise!  Our philosophy is to create a well-rounded student by using competitive athletics to teach teamwork, discipline, accountability, and resilience. These traits help build life skills that will follow them throughout their higher education and career.  Chapelgate gives our students the ability to play and grow in a variety of sports, with 14 teams in 8 different sports in our Upper School and 5 teams in 5 different sport in our growing Middle School program. The size of CCA gives the student the ability to excel in their primary sport, giving them the opportunity to move to the next level, as we have many Yellow Jacket Alumni currently playing in college. 

Our students also have the option to try a new sport in a different season, maybe even one that they have never played before!  Chapelgate competes in the prestigious MIAA & the IAAM leagues.  Chapelgate has a history of winning, capturing numerous league and tournament championships throughout our short history.  What separates Chapelgate from other schools is our Christ centered teaching, which translates out on the field though our athletic department and our coaches.

I can do all things through HIM who strengthens me
