Athletics Information


We are KCS Knights

Extracurricular activities, especially interscholastic sports, are an important part of your student’s experience while at Knoxville Christian School. With our wide variety of athletic opportunities and dedicated coaches, our athletes learn many life lessons that will make them successful in athletics and as Christian leaders in their community.

Based in Christian principles, we strive for our students to compete at the highest level in the sport in which they participate. Through athletics, we desire each athlete to pursue their goal of playing at the next level or simply belong to something bigger than themselves. Through a mix of league participation and independent scheduling, KCS provides a unique yet challenging athletic season for all our student athletes.

Should you have any questions about the program please contact the athletic office at 865-966-7060.

Dear Friends of KCS

I am pleased to off you an opportunity to become a Community Partner with Knoxville Christian School Athletics. KCS strongly believes that lessons learned on the playing field promote honor, build character, and prepare student-athletes to become leaders throughout their lives. Instilling Christian principles, KCS desires each athlete learn how to live and how to make a living.

Knoxville Christian’s athletic program is still young but is growing leaps and bounds with each passing school year. We currently have 17 teams on campus with 7 varsity high school teams, 6 middle school teams, and 4 elementary teams. Our student-athletes compete in the Knoxville Independent School League (KISL) for middle school sports and the Southern Christian Athletic Association (SCAA) for high school sports. Alongside these leagues, our high school boys basketball and baseball varsity teams complete in the National Association of Christian Athletes and play an independent schedule with many games scheduled away from Knoxville against some of the top teams in the nation. Our high school boys and girls basketball teams were regular season SCAA champions of the north division and the boys finished #1 last year winning the tournament title. Our middle school boys basketball team saw success going 18-2, and our high school baseball team was Division-2 champions in the NACA tournament in Dayton, TN.

In order for our program to have continued success, we need your help! Over the next year, the athletic department hopes to raise funds which will be used to enhance our athletic facilities, purchase new equipment, and cover team travel expenses. To reach these goals, the athletics department is offering a variety of sponsorship opportunities. Please see below for more information.

Thank you for your interest in KCS Athletics. If you would like to become a Community Partner, please complete the sponsorship form and return it to the address provided. For more information about the program contact me at ahorn@knoxvillechristianschool.org or 865-066-7060.

Sincerely,

Andrew Horn
