King’s Elementary School Athletics

King’s Elementary provides students a comprehensive physical education program in a Christ-centered environment aimed to develop cooperative social skills, healthy competition, teamwork, leadership, skill competency, and enjoyment of physical activity. Students will learn and develop skills in a variety of activities and sports they can enjoy throughout their lives. Physical education at the elementary school sets the tone for our students’ athletic journey at King’s.  

Summer Camps at King’s Elementary

Our King’s Athletic Programs provide student-athletes the opportunity to mentor and disciple younger generations of athletes through our sport-specific summer camps. Every summer, our jr. High and high school student-athletes mentor elementary school students at day camps. During these few days together, elementary students learn the basics of the sport, develop their skills, and fellowship with older student-athletes. These day camps are entirely student-athlete-led.

This summer, we are offering Elementary Summer Day Camps for cheer, football, soccer, volleyball, basketball, and golf.

King’s Elementary students play together in local sports leagues

Community is a large part of King’s Elementary. This community transcends into the local sports leagues our students play in. King’s elementary parents and teachers coach many of these teams. Our students have the opportunity to play alongside their classmates as they engage in healthy competition.

The King’s Elementary community offers an incredible basketball feeder program, Knight Hoops. Our Knight Hoops feeder program prepares students at a young age for junior high and high school basketball. Many of our High School athletes started playing together in elementary on Knight Hoops. King’s Junior High and High School basketball teams partner together with Knight Hoops for day camps and mentorship opportunities with the younger teams throughout the year.
