What do we offer?

At Lions Gate Christian Academy we believe that playing sport is an act of worship. Sometimes it is very easy to forget this, especially when things become competitive. As Christians we need to play to honour God and those around us while trying our best to win and reach our full potential.

We currently offer Swimming, Girls and Boys Volleyball, Boys and Girls Basketball, Boys Hockey, Co-ed Soccer, and Co-ed Ultimate.
