Grade 6 Sports Developmental Program:

Our program focuses on the development of students in Grade 6 for participation in sports in Grades 7 and 8 and ultimately high school. It helps advance individual and team skills in Cross Country, Boys Golf, Basketball, Flag Football, and Girls Volleyball. Practices/games are held several times a week in 4 to 6-week sessions that integrate CVCA high school coaches and student-athletes. The format for each sport is unique and most practices are held at the end of the school day.
