Welcome to MCA Athletics
Welcome to McKinney Christian Academy, home of the Mustangs. Through participation in athletics, our goal is to develop Christian character in our student athletes. As a member of an athletic team, students will learn to be better communicators and goal-setters and will be challenged to develop a strong work ethic. The importance of commitment to team, perseverance through adversity, as well as good sportsmanship is also developed throughout our program. Our athletic program offers many opportunities to teach life lessons that are not always available in the academic classroom. Our heart’s desire for our coaches is to model Christ-like living, love our students, coach in a positive, enthusiastic manner, and work to make a difference in each student’s life. We are committed to a high standard of excellence. At MCA, we understand the importance of developing an attitude that would lead our coaches and teams to always give the best of their talents and abilities to honor God. Win, lose or tie it is our desire to do so while reflecting grace, humility, and dignity that would reflect Christian character. Winning or losing games is not nearly as important as the manner in which we handle these life situations. Success and failure in a sport may not always be measured by the final score, but rather by always giving maximum effort, having a positive attitude and doing the best we can with our God-given abilities. That is the true measure of success in athletics.
McKinney Christian Academy has long been a member of the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools or “TAPPS.” The organization that originally began as TAPS with a membership of around 10 schools is now over 240 schools strong and offers athletic competition at the district as well as state levels. The MCA- SLC Gym will serve as home for the Navy and Vegas Gold banners that will hang from the walls. These banners will represent every varsity sport and carry what will become the years of district, regional, and state championships that Mustang teams will achieve.
As you visit our campus you will notice Navy and Vegas Gold everywhere. Those are the school colors that represent MCA Mustang Athletic Teams. Our students, parents, and alums wear the “Navy and Vegas Gold” with a sense of pride as they support our many teams.
We are excited about the Athletic Programs at McKinney Christian Academy and we look forward to your participation with us.
